Am I Blue Poinsietta ~ NAC20 & FMS61

This pretty little card is for Nacho Average Challenge #20 and Freshly Made Sketches #61. 
I knew I loved Midnight Muse and Baja Breeze together, but to add in Summer Starfruit too?  Hmmm, I don't know.  I looked at the designers for inspiration and saw this card by Rose.  Blue poinsiettas was an idea I had rolling around in my head for a while and then I saw Rose's card....I loved it!  That was it.....I had to try it for myself!  I actually love the Summer Starfruit sprigs coming out of my masked poinsiettas too!  The sweet, simple sketch from FMS this week was a great match for this card. 
I dry embossed the base card with the Petals A Plenty EF and sponged on some of the new Illuninate ink from the SU Holiday Catalog.  It adds a bit of shimmer.

I added a sliver of Baja Breeze behind the main panel, a strip of Midnight Muse ribbon and topped it off with a Baja Breeze corduroy button.  Lastly, I sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamond glitter, because everything is better with glitter, you know! 
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Watercolor Winter
Paper: Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze, Vanilla
Ink: Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze, Summer Starfruit, Illuminate
Accessories: Petals A Plenty EF, Midnight Muse Satin ribbon, Corduroy button, Dazzling Diamonds
Thanks for taking a peek and have a dyamite day!
