Memory Box Poinsettia and Pinkfresh Studio Christmas card

Hello again and welcome! The time has come for the November ABC Christmas Challenge and this time our themes are  

W - Wreath
X - fauX

Lindsey is our lovely host this month and she has this lovely prize to give to our winner

I went for W for Wreath and came up with this card.

I used an Imagination Crafts stencil for the background called Multi Snow Dots and just inked through it with shades of pink and red.

Next, I stamped and die cut my new Pinkfresh Studio Hanging Florals wreath but cut away the flowers that are on it to make way for Christmassy poinsettias and stretch my stash.

I die cut the Memory Box Poinsettia Stem dies and some mixed holly and poinsettia leaves from white card and blended on some ink to give more authentic variations in colour, and arranged them on the bottom of the wreath.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Most Wonderful stamp set, and I finished off with a tiny tag from Papertrey Ink.

Our talented Design Team have some great inspiration for you over on the blog and it would be great to have you join us this time.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.

So sorry I haven't been around much Carol... Still it's a joy to visit and see this wonderful Christmas card! I'm loving that bauble! Perfect with those pretty poinsettias. It's so dark and wet here and I'm guessing it's the same for you...Hope you enjoy your week.

Wow, this is beautiful Carol! I love the snow dots you stenciled, and I love how you mixed your poinsettia's and berry branches on this ornament shape. So stunning with the bow and candy striped string. Love it! Hugs, Brenda
