Merry Christmas

 Another Christmas card, I know.  But I just love the Merry Monday sketches so much that sometimes I have to play along even when I don't "need" another Christmas card.  All though, really, until all the Christmas cards are finished, I always "need" another one. : )
This second picture shows a little more of the dimension of the poinsettia.  I printed out the digital image 4 times, colored them, cut them apart and layered them all together.  It really looks fabulous, but it is tall and I don't know if it will really fit in an envelope!

Challenges:
Stamping with Dragon--a flower for Mum (not quite what they were thinking, I'm sure, but it IS a flower--I could give it to my mother)
Sister Act #6--anything goes
Crafty Katz #182--anything goes
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown #17--red and white
Merry Monday #60--sketch
Crafty Ribbons--No preprinted paper
Crafting By Designs--anything goes with paper piecing

Supplies:
Stamps: Eureka Stamps "Poinsettia" digi stamp; Verve "Merry and Bright" sentiments; Hero Arts "French Script"
