Season's Greetings

Hello my friends! Hope you're well and staying warm. I haven't been paying much attention to my blog or friends. Life is a little crazy over here...I don't know if I'm coming or going. One thing's for sure, I don't know how to say no. Which is how I ended up making another batch of cards. At least it's for a good cause!

Not terribly imaginative but they'll do when you need to knock up a few in a hurry. Incredibly, I made 5!

This card came together very quickly. The greeting and poinsettia are from Clearly Besotted's Pretty Poinsettia stamps. The greenery is from the Leafy Accents set. I used TH Barn Door to stamp the poinsettia and Peeled Paint for the leaves, which I also used to sponge the SB Deckled Rectangle before stamping the greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black.

With CBS's Coordinating Die I cut the flower and adhered it with thin foam tape...same deal with the greeting. Some stitching, bling, twine and little dots of Stardust Stickles to seal the deal. Can't leave out the sparkle on a Christmas card!

Taking this card to these challenges:
