Poinsettias and Ladybugs

Hello everyone....I have been in a whirlwind the last few days!!! I have been shopping, making Christmas cards, getting ready for my DGS's school party...on and on!!! My DGS's program isn't till 1:00 PM today so I had a minute to play...Whoohoo!!!

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. The Rubbernecker Poinsettia images were stamped twice with Versamark and embossed with gold ep. They were then colored with Twinkling H2O's, cutout, and popped up on foam tape. Pearls for the centers, lace and gold ribbon finish it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Poinsettias
Paper: Very Vanilla, Handsome Hunter, BoBunny dp
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Gols Embossing Powder, Twinkling H2O's, Lace, Gold Ribbon, Pearls, Foam Tape

I made this card yesterday for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast.
The challenge colors were Mellow Moss, So Saffron, and Mellon Mambo.
This is also for Monday's CAS45 challenge to use curves...the scalloped edges on the Nesties die cuts are very curvy!! I also made this card for the DDC challenge hosted by me to use polka dots on your design. My post is #51 in the Double Dog Dare Challenge Forum. Please join us in the DDC and put DDC in the keywords section of your upload so we can find your cards. The little stamp called Ladybug Flower from Clear Dollar Stamps was colored with copics and my polka dots are on the Stampin Up! So Saffron dp and the embossed background.
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Ladybug Flower Paper: White, Mellon Mambo, So Saffron dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Have a great day and I hope you have a few minutes to stamp!!!
