Pretty Poinsettia

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Thanks!

The super talented Jane has a new digital stamp released at Squigglefly. Here is a card that I made using Jane's new stamp - Pretty Poinsettia.

Isn't it gorgeous? I love this beautiful and classy image for holiday cards! I printed it out twice and layered them to get some dimension.

I colored three Hero Arts gems with a Copic marker for the flower center then traced the outlines of the first flower with a glitter pen. The patterned papers are from Memory Box's beautiful Mistletoe collection.

That's all I have for today (I promise!), check out all of Jane's Doodles digital stamps here at Squigglefly.

As always, Jane is generously providing a free Pretty Poinsettia to a lucky commenter on today's post. Please leave me a comment here. You have until 11:59 PM PST Sunday September 5th to enter. I will pick a lucky winner and post it on my Monday post!

Please go and check out what the other Jane's Doodles DT members came up with. Here are the links:
Have a fabulous weekend! =)
