MCV53, OLS29 - Season's Greetings


My very simple card for two Christmas challenges: Muse: ChristmasVisions and One-Layer Simplicity.

MCV DT member Chriss gave us this inspiration:



I focused on Chriss':
-3 poinsettias in rich, rich red
-black greenting

I left mine clean and graphic - no gold flower centres, no black spatter.

I used:
-Impress Poinsettia (retired)
-Penny Black sentiment.
