Hi all, today I have a card to share with you and enter a few challenges.  I am trying to get motivated to make some more Christmas cards I have been looking at my stash and am shocked at just what I have collected over the years, I have been giving some things away to the local charity store along with the cards I make, except the Christmas ones, so that they can make a bit of money, it makes me feel like I am actually doing something worthwhile.  While debating on my future in craft I found myself looking through some boxes and found some Funky Foam and some Christmas card stock that I bought from Create and Craft a few years ago, I felt that I could finally put it to some use and this is what I came up with.
I used a 6" x 6" red scalloped card for my base I used my Memory Box sentiment die and the Poinsettia card stock I mounted them onto gold mirror card I then used the Funky Foam and X Cut Poinsettia dies for the flower, because the inner card is red I decided, for possibly once in my life, to decorate the inside with the same card as on the front.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I want to thank you all for the wonderful, kind comments that I received on my last posting, I read and re-read each one, your kindness has no bounds and I am forever grateful that you make me feel so loved and needed, thank you.

I know Lorraine, isn't it just so scary how much stash we acquire, but at the same it's nice to revisit old stash and see it in a totally different light.

I always love to see Poinsettias on seasonal cards and I can imagine this one has lovely dimension to in close up.
