Sending Merry Christmas Wishes

 Hello! Here we are one week before Christmas, are you ready? It's time to remind you of The Flower Challenge #87 where we are still making cards that use gold. I've been wrapping Christmas gifts, and that theme carried over on today's card. 

An embossed white panel serves as the package wrapped in gold ribbon and adorned with a red poinsettia. I added shading with darker red ink to the blooms (Waffle Flower.)  The foliage is cut from SSS Velvet card stock which I love for it's softness. You just want to touch it! 
Our challenge continues through this month. I hope you will pay a visit to our blog and join in with your own creations. If you are celebrating Christmas, may it bring you much joy! 

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

You've used one of my favorite Poinsettia dies Cindy, and totally made it SHINE on your pretty package with the gold ribbon and plaid background! Lovely, lovely card my friend, and a very Merry Christmas to you and your family!! Hugs. :0)

As a big fan of plaid I love the way you used it as a background for your 'package', Cindy. All gifts should be wrapped as beautifully as this.

Beautifully wrapped, Cindy! Love that poinsettia and how you've incorporated the plaid!

How beautiful! This would be the most lovely package under the tree. Rich and I have appointments right up through the week. Even retired I look forward to the weekends because there can't be any medical appointments. Christmas will come together and be lovely no matter what. Happy holidays, Cindy!

Always mean to make a card looking like a gift, but never have done it. This is absolutely gorgeous!
