Blue Christmas ~ HSS250, FabFri99

Hello stampers!  It's time for another fun color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  This one was chosen by your truly.  

I also used the Fab Friday #99 sketch to help me complete my card.

Don't you just love a blue poinsettia?  I think they are so pretty and a little bit of a diversion from the regular Christmas colors.  
I actually had the Pretty Paisley's embossed vanilla piece laying on my desk that was discarded from a previous project.  I thought it would make a nice frame for the Merry Christmas sentiment.  I added some gold accents in there to make the card a little more festive and elegant.  
The one thing I'm not too keen on is the splattering...which is very hard to see in the pictures.  I tried using my Wink Of Stella gold pen to add a few spritz to the background.  In hindsight I wish I had left it plain.  Oh well!

I also added a bit of clear Wink Of Stella to the flower petals.  It adds so much nice glimmer!

I hope you'll find time to play along with us!  Remember, HSS is always a two week challenge!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. Beautiful! I love the non-traditional blue for the poinsettia! Very eye catching with the gold accents as well! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  2. Gorgeous! You know, I actually saw blue poinsettias last year at the store - so striking! Mad science at its greatest, lol. This is a beautiful card, and love the embossed oval around the sentiment - perfect! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  3. Oh my goodness, how pretty!! The flower is beautiful in blue and I love the touches of gold. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, hope to see you again soon!

  4. Thi is so lovely, Jenny! I love the softness of the colors and the simply elegant design. I often spatter and wish I hadn't later, but I think it's so pretty and adds just the right touch with the gold.
