Fusion Card Challenge

 Every December it's a great day when you are finally done with your Christmas cards...have them addressed and ready to take to the post office.  That's the kind of day I had today.  Yay!  It did help that I have been making holiday cards since last January, and I made so many...it was fun choosing which one to send to everyone on my card list.  Today I finished the last card I plan to send this season, and it was a very fun card to make.  I used both the inspiration photo and the sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge.  Did you know they have started up their challenges again due to the many requests they received?  They even have a Design Team call out...here are the details.
I used Lil Inker stamps and dies for this card.  Do you recognize that poinsettia?  I used the leaf image from the Modern Mehndi Stamp Set, clear embossed and layered onto a Stitched Mat Circle to create my poinsettia.  I used a small circle for the top layer (worked easiest if you make the smaller top layer first) and a larger circle for the bottom layer.  Those glittery poinsettia berries are from Holly Jolly Die Set and those branches...they are the Christmas tree from Christmas Bits Die Set.  I think it totally looks like pine branch greenery...don't you?  
I have my good friend Kim Heggins to thank for the beautiful red Cover Up Christmas die cut...she was nice enough to send me a few cuts, SOS style.  What a great friend to help me out with a die I don't yet own myself.  Thank you Kim!
It's not too late to join in the fun over at the Fusion Card Challenge...this one is running for the entire month of December.  Why not play along?
