Plaid is Rad: Happy Holiday Poinsettia

 One last card for the Plaid is Rad Challenge, over at the Poppystamps blog.

Lezlye's beautiful card with the white glitter Christmas trees, uses a fabulous paper from Basic Grey released a few years ago.  It's one of my all time favorites, so I chose to feature that print, and dress it up.

I've been itching to use the Holiday Poinsettia die that I won! When Poppystamps has a release, they give you an opportunity to win one of their amazing dies with each blog post.

This poinsettia die has just the punch needed to make the focal point sing The perfect accompaniment  is the  Fancy Happy Holiday die, cut from black glitter paper. (I really need to do something about my poor photographic space. Shine just isn't an element of my photos, and what's Christmas without shine?!) The plaid from Authentic had the cute musical border which I die cut.

I included a pic of this card on it's side, because when folks pick it up, they always put it down that way. I prefer the sentiment in the vertical orientation. Which way do you like it?


Now to post these, and see what the rest of you have been up to. If you like what you see, please leave me a comment; it will make my day. Happy Thanksgiving and may your holidays be filled with creativity and cheer.
