Pretty Poinsettia

I said I was going to get ready for Christmas early, and this is another card to add to my early collection!  It uses that gorgeous poinsettia image from A Day For Daisies, but this time I double printed the main flower and then decoupaged it - slightly off centre to build up my flower - but it's still nice and flat for posting - little foam pads required!



Really pleased with this simple card.  The centre has got a liquid pearl finish and the sentiment computer generated.
