Poinsettia card

Hi everyone, another grey day here again, hope it's
not so gloomy where you are . I have another
'Less is More' card to show you today, it's week 96
and a colour theme this time which is.....
Red & Green
I knew immediately which image I would use, a lovely
'Poinsettia' digi image from 'Beccy's Place'.It's an old freebie
 she had ages ago,( Nov 2009, still available if you look in the 
side bar there) at Beccy's older images.I coloured it with Promarkers
 and cut some of the petals and layered them too.A bit of my usual
 glamour dust and that was it finished.I printed a greeting on
 a separate matt and attached the flowers. A strip of white under
 that piece coloured at the edges with a matching Promarker
 and job done.Come and have a closer look...........
ps. So busy today, trying to make a card and take a photograph
 before the light goes. Now I have to start on tomorrow's food
prep as our children and grandchildren are all coming for
 a meal tomorrow. Should have been last weekend but illness struck
my youngest son's family. I am also surrounded by Xmas 'stuff'
 and pressies so have to hide those too.Two cots to put up for the
babies, cleaning/tidying......must get on now......enjoy your weekend
 everyone. Hugs for everyone who is ill too! version of the POINSETTIA is now on Beccy's
 blog, for free ....and in colour also ! look HERE
