Ornament Keepsake Poinsettia

I've been having a play with my Ornament keepsake bundle and apart from the 'normal' Christmas ornament style projects I have made this poinsettia flower from some of the die cut shapes


I stamped and die cut 8 of the red ornament shapes and then a further 5 of the green - the ornament tops have been hidden by adding the centre. This is the small round stamp from the set and I cut out the very middle part to create the flower centre.
Here's a close up


Materials
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Christmas Blessings (sentiment)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso (marker)
Card Stock: Naturals White, Crumb Cake,
Paper: Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP
Accessories: Holiday Ornaments Framelits
(If you would like to make a card like this there is a special offer this month with the Ornament Keepsake bundle - see the side bar for details).

I will be entering this card in this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge

and
Craft-room challenge
where the theme is Punches and Die Cuts.

Thanks for looking - going to attempt a version of the hanging ornament from the cover of the Holiday Mini so please come back for that. Bye for now - Jacqueline xx
