Merry Monday 101


This card is for this week's Merry Monday colour challenge - red, white and grey:



I was inspired to make this poinsettia by Deborah's card  HERE. I used an Impress outline stamp, stamped and embossed with white embossing powder on vellum. I then used a Copic marker to colour the back  and then coated the petals with a very thin layer of stickles for some sparkle. The thick outlines made this very easy to fussy-cut. The Stickles made the vellum crinkle up a bit so the flower has some amazing dimension.
