Poinsettia Heel

Marie is the host of this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Winter Blossoms' as the theme.  This month we have two fabulous sponsors for our challenge - Bugaboo Stamps are giving seven images from their online store to one winner and The Craft Barn are giving a £10.00 voucher to spend in their store to the second lucky winner.

For my card I've used this lovely Bugaboo Digi 'Poinsettia Heel'.  I'm entering this card into the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Christmas Foliage' challenge' and Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes'. I'm also entering the Classic Design Team Open Challenge which is 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank:6" x 6" white silk
Stamp:  Bugaboo Digi 'Poinsettia Heel'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Colouring: Promarkers, Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star
Card: Red matt, silver mirri, white silk
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle's Christmas' (magazine freebie)
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Harrington' font, Wink of Stella, Crystal Stickles, red nailheads

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto red card and silver mirri before attaching it to the card front. I printed the Poinsettia Heel onto white card.  I die cut and embossed the image before attaching it to a scalloped and embossed silver mirri circle.  I coloured the shoe with a pale grey Promarker and Sakura Clear Star pen.  The poinsettia was coloured with Promarkers with a Wink of Stella on the leaves and Stickles on the yellow flowers.  The image was then attached to the centre of the card.  I printed the sentiment, trimmed it, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it to the card with foam tape.  To finish I added red nailheads to the top and bottom corners of the card.
