Pink Poinsiettas ~ CCMC227

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope you are surrounded by friends and family celebrating this thankful day!  I sure do have much to be thankful for!
This card is for Create with Connie and Mary 227.  The challenge was to make a special shaped card using framelits or dies. 
2012 Create Thursday-007
I pretty much stayed true to the sketch.  I used the Bells and Boughs set and colored these pretty poinseittas pink.  This makes me think of my mom who loves poinsiettas.  She had a very pretty pink plant that she was able to keep around for a long time.  Me, I've never been a plant house plant person and can't seem to keep them alive, so I admire anyone who can! 
I watercolored the image after stamping it in Stazon ink on watercolor paper.  I layered it on a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper and then on the main card base of Primrose Petals.  I ran the base top through my Big Shot using the Lacy Brocade EF, placed a couple of strips of Primrose Petal DP, then finished everything off with an always artichoke seam binding bow and some pearls. 
Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Bells and Boughs
Paper: Primrose Petal Cardstock and DP, Champagne Glimmer, Watercolor
Ink: Primrose Petal, Raspberry Ripple, Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzaz
Accessories: Gold glitter, Labels Framelits die, Always Artichoke Seam Binding ribbon, pearls, Lacy Brocade EF
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
