Muse 128 - Pretty Poinsettia


Anyone else having a hard time keeping up this summer? It's whooshing by and I'm not getting nearly as much done as I had hoped. Starting Monday, both my kids will be at home (ie not at camp) for the rest of the summer, so I can't see how I'll be getting much crafting time. If you don't hear from me (either here or in comments), you'll know why!

Anyway, here's my take on this week's Muse, where Michele gave us this cool, beautiful inspiration:



I stuck with the colours but changed the theme. I recently got these two poinsettia dies from Memory Box - there's a solid flower, and the top layer is so intricate and beautiful cut in silver mirror card.

I grounded the poinsettia using the negative remainder of the white solid poinsettia to sponge MFT Limelight on my round (MFT pierced circle) panel.

I'm still debating adding a black sentiment but I'm not exactly sure where. Thoughts?

I hope you'll play along with us this week. The deadline is next Monday at 8 am EDT. Voting starts at that time and goes until Tuesday at 8. Voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

STEP AWAY FROM THE CARD!!! No sentiment needed on the stunning creation. The die is amazing! Love the layers.

That die is gorgeous and I love how you've layered it here. Definitely a tricky one for a sentiment but it really down't need one - the design really can stand on it's own.
