Christmas Poinsettia

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

My son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter are here from CA for a week. We have had some wonderful family time. 

It's been so hot and humid here in Pittsburgh this past week. I just came from a refreshing swim with my granddaughter and hubby in our neighbor's pool. My granddaughter is busy with an art project right now so I thought I would do a quick Blog post.

This card I made to celebrate Christmas in July. I used the colors from the color challenge #955 We were to use soft succulent, poppy parade and petal pink for the color trio. Optional is Christmas in July. 
petal pink, poppy parade, soft succulent

I don't have petal pink cardstock, so I used powder pink for my poinsettia. Since there are no veins in this die, I added them with powder pink ink and a brush and for the top layer I used a R20 Copic marker.

The leaves are cut in soft succulent cardstock and then shaded with the same ink for a deeper hue. After I finished this card, I found some soft succulent glimmer paper, so I cut the holly leaves in that paper for a little shine. I decided not to remove the other piece of cardstock but kept it for a darker border.

Stamped my Merry Christmas sentiment in poppy parade. It's a new to me stamp set from The Ton Stamps. It's called "fill it in holiday". I bought it last year at a rubber stamp show but never used it at Christmas. Found it a couple of days ago.

That's it for me for this post. So until next time.....God bless.
