Challenge #34

Here come the girls! is our theme for the week at Bah!Humbug! So, I tried to be as girlie as I could by using softer colors to make a huge poinsettia flower. The flower and leaf petals are just torn from card stock. I then scored down the middle to make the vein, and inked the edges with chalk inks to match the petals. I added white brads to the center, and white grosgrain ribbon stamped with a sentiment underneath the flower. I then put it on a mat of white and green before sticking it to the card base. The inside is finished, also, with the same colors.

I would also like to enter it into CHNC's "build it up" challenge for this week. I have used multiple layers, so I think it will qualify.

Thanks for taking a look...I hope you like it!


  1. I love your poinsettia Ruth. It's much more authentic than a symmetrical one cut with a die etc.I was rather challenged by the Girly theme, but i did manage something last night. I'll blog it later today. I'll have to try tearing my flowers next time. this looks good. Kate x

  2. You definitely do qualify - it's a beautiful card and I love the layered poinsettia - thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 35 - hope to see you again soon. x
