Topic: Pretty Paper
My mom and I enjoyed seeing all the varieties of poinsettias in the stores this year. Her favorite was the pink with red around the outer edges of the petals. Mine was the white with pink streaks in the centers. We also saw about 5 shades of red from burgundy to fire-engine red, plus pinks and whites. The most awful was a dull light orange that make it look like the plant was half dead.
Anyway, what reminded me of this was this printed paper with a white poinsettia in the corner. I used a craft knife to slice along the top edge of the bloom so I could tuck in two strips of paper with vintage ornaments.
I distressed the edges to carry on the vintage feel and stamped the sentiment.
