Christmas Floral


I have not used this Marianne lantern die for quite some time.  It is a large die so the card is 5x7. I started by using a red frame that I cut with Spellbinders 5x7 matting basics and backed with some Swiss dot vellum. I believe the candle is from Joy Craft.  The poinsettia is from Spellbinders.  I will stamp something on the little Cheery Lynn fishtail die cut before I give the card away.  The greenery around the poinsettia is a combination of Cheery Lynn and IO pine branches.  I used some Tall Choloe from Memory Box  die cuts left over from another project to add some sparkle. I will enter this in the Cheery Lynn Anything Goes Challenge HERE , Mod Squad Challenge Blog Christmas Floral  HERE, and the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge HERE
