Happy Poinsettia

I went outside the box again with REASON FOR THE SEASON and did a wedding card to show this set isn’t just for Christmas!

Isn’t this pretty in pinks and coral!  I was inspired by the color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

A floral card was the first thought I had when seeing these colors.  So I went back to REASON FOR THE SEASON to see how the colors worked on the poinsettia.

I ended up doing the outline of the flower in Watermelon Wonder and added color to the petals with Calypso Coral stamped off once.  Blushing Bride made a lovely background with the Watercolor Wash background stamp.

Since we have Blushing Bride sequins, I had to add a few in plus a bit of gold thread.  I think they added the finishing touch the card needed.  As far as the greeting goes, I went with my favorite set for sentiments, COTTAGE GREETINGS in Watermelon Wonder.  I love the end result, a very pretty wedding card!  So now you have TWO card ideas from me to use REASON FOR THE SEASON for something other than Christmas!  If you don’t remember the first, you can check it out HERE.

    What a pretty card Nicole and you definitely managed to show the poinsettia set’s versatility. I think this card ably demonstrates ‘a poinsettia is for life, not just for Christmas!’ Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week.

      Thank you so much Joanne! I think this is such a beautiful set, it would be a shame to use it only for Christmas!
