Painted Poinsettias

Good Morning, Stampers!

Sunflowers as poinsettias? Why not!! Stretch the Painted Harvest set from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog all thru the holidays by just changing up the colors of the flowers! Here, I used Real Red, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. The Wood Textures designer paper gives it a little of a shabby/natural feel. Swap the colors for oranges and yellow and you'll have a great Thanksgiving card!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Painted Harvest
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Old Olive, Real Red, Crushed Curry
Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Wood Textures DSP
Accessories: Gold Trimmed Ribbon
