Poinsettia Joy


Hi There Lovely Bloggers...


Today I have a card for the brand new challenge at In The Pink - our theme is 

SPOTS AND/OR STRIPES (or both!)

so I chose to use spots..  I used them both on the background card, then I dotted around the flower image to give some more spots... just call me Dotty!  I used an image from our sponsor - A Day For Daisies - this is the fabulous Christmas Poinsettia.  After colouring and die-cutting the image, I took the MFT Joy word die - and die-cut through the coloured image.  I cut another couple of plain white words - and layered those in the space left by the original word, before replacing the coloured word on the top...  hmmm, hope you followed that!  Although it shows up well in real life, it was quite difficult to photograph... so I tried from different directions so you can see the depth of the word.
