DT 121 - Yuletide Season Poinsettias

 Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 121!

This week, it's all about dies (or punches) and woodgrain. The small graphic is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge site for detailed information. 

I had some leftover die cuts from some Christmas cards that I recently finished and decided they would work well for my card. The background is a piece of woodgrain paper and I lightly inked the edges with a turquoise ink pad. The brown background was die cut and then cut into two pieces. The sentiment was stamped on white and die cut, along with a darker brown circle background. I arranged the poinsettias and other blooms around the sentiment and cut slits in the background pieces to string a ribbon though. A bow was added under the sentiment and I added a glitter gem to each of the flowers. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us your projects with dies or punches. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

I am also linking up my card with the Use Your Stuff challenge (woodgrain). 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
