Simon Says - Get Crafty and Use Kraft

This week the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Get Crafty and Use Kraft.  I saw a technique on Pinterest that I'm using with this card.

Here's my card

I stamped the poinsettia spray on Kraft card stock with white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I painted the flowers with reinkers that had been spritzed with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls.  It's hard to see in the photo but there is a subtle glimmer on the flowers.  The sentiment was stamped on a ribbon tag and embossed with white embossing powder.  I added a green bow, button and some twine.  Thanks for coming by to look!

I didn't realize until after I had posted this that I had forgotten to color the centers of the poinsettias, so here is another photo.  lol

What a treat, your card is gorgeous!, I love the Poinsettia stamped and embossed on kraft, it's such a pretty soft look and your coloring is spectacular. Your design layout with that fabulous bow and sentiment work beautifully together. Well done!
