Clean & Simple Poinsettia

I've been playing with the Poinsettias from Fred-She-Said again:).  This time I wanted to try a clean & simple card that I could make quickly and easily to help with the mountain of Christmas cards that needs making.  I've used a textured card and stamped the swirl (a clear set from Personal Impressions that I've had for ages) directly onto the card in Olympia Green Versafine.  The poinsettia is only 3 layers, with a little Stickles in the middle.  That's it.  Card done!  What do you think? I really like it but it's hard to leave it alone, I keep wanting to add more swirls...
This card is for the following Challenges:
Weekly Christmas Card Challenges - Clean & Simple
Crafty Cardmakers - Clean & Simples
Secret Crafter Challenge - Clean & Simple
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Winter Wonderland

  1. I love it just the way it is. I have been lurking around Fred She Said and the coloured packs look so versatile especially for creating quick cards that still look wonderful.
    Hugs!

  10. Anne - I think this is beautiful. I think you have balanced it really well with the sentiment in the opposite corner.
