Christmas Greenery

Good morning!
Are you getting excited about our August release party happening tomorrow??
The new stamps are really something special and I know you will love them!! 
I already put in an order for the entire collection!!  That is how awesome they are. 

Well I am here today, to share the  project I made for this weeks "Christmas Greenery" challenge.  
The Poinsettia Flower was stamped and embossed on watercolor paper.  I used distress inks to the color the petals and leaf.  I them trimmed each one out and layered it on top of one another.  Creating a beautiful 3D flower.  I added yellow beads to the center for even more dimension.
