Peaceful Poinsettia

A poinsettia Christmas card using my favourite Christmas stamp; it can be the focus of the card or the sentiment or both.  I stamped in two-tone red and green, then sponged around the edges to tone down the starkness of the cream cardstock.

I used:  Kaisercraft Christmas Collection dp, Rosie's Studio red textured cardstock and Green Collection cardstock, Poppy Stamps Blooming Poinsettia die, MFT Die-namics Prima Donna Petals for flower centre, Stamp-It Peaceful Background stamp, Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Bamboo Leaves ink, gold brad, foam tape.
