Joyful Pink Poinsettias

I forgot something.

I made six of these yesterday, and I meant to do something on the center of the poinsettia to jazz it up a bit--like some glitter glue or something.  But I forgot to do that yesterday.  Oops.  I did decorate the inside of the cards, though.

The Pink Pirouette poinsettia turned out darker on the edges and lighter in the center, and I'm gonna pretend I planned it that way to stamp the sentiment in the flower.

The color combo is courtesy of the Paper Players:

And the card sketch is from Mojo Monday:

Though my card is more "inspired by" than a strict use of the sketch.

We've got a bit of low-lying fog here today, so it looks all wintry outside and I'm about to take my two little doglets for a walk.  Unfortunately I just checked the temperature--34 degrees--so it's gonna feel pretty wintry out there too.  But then I can make myself a nice hot cuppa tea when I get home...have a wonderful day!

Oh, at first I thought the polka dots were on a brown and I liked that -- but the olive is good. Cute card, Chris! And stay warm!

I love, love, love this one!! And enjoy the 34*! We can't seem to get into the double digits lately... and we're living off hot chocolate! :)

Yes, I DO like the brown with white polka dots in the background. Cute.
