Anyway, it's time for the Friday Flashback! Ya know, sometimes I come across a stamp set that I just really like and I can't believe that I haven't used it more. And I think that happens more with seasonal stamp sets because I, for one, don't make Christmas cards year-round. But anyway, today's retired stamp set is Joyful Christmas.
ACK! I love that poinsettia. The grocery store here (how I love Wegmans!) has some special dyed poinsettias that are, I kid you not, royal blue. So, so pretty.

This Wedgewood-inspired card is one of my favoritest creations ever, I just love it. I embossed the poinsettia with white EP, and then I watercolored it with white ink. It took quite a lot of time but I just loved how it turned out.
And that is all I had in my archives for Joyful Christmas, which is a shame because I love love love that poinsettia. So here's my new creation:
TBH, this is my least favorite of the three cards. Maybe I'd like it better if I had used Calypso Coral for the card base and then embossed the sentiment in white, I don't know. I do like the color combination, it *can* be Christmasy with some creativity but it doesn't have to be, thank you ColourQ:
And I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
Okay, kids. I need to go vacuum the rest of the house and then get going to the post office and the store. Maybe I'll snap a pic of those royal blue poinsettias for you. Cheers!
