Pink poinsettias

This week at Winter Wonderland Denis has challenges us to make a card which is Pretty in Pink. I love pink Christmas cards and used a sweet Sugar Nellie girl for my first double twisted easel card. The poinsettia is a Marianne die cut which has been sprayed with Spray and Sparkle. The leaves are also a Marianne die which I cut in half.

I would also like to enter his into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes Easel or Twisted Easel
ABC Christmas M is for Monochrome
Scrapbook Sisters Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Monochromatic
Stampin for the weekend My favourite things (Sugar Nellie, pearls, flowers, pretty papers, Christmas cards)
Facebook Sugar Nellies More than one fold

The sun is shining at the moment and we are promised high temperatures from Sunday. Of course that probably means too hot, one extreme to the other. Last Sunday we went out and it was miserable weather and I had 3 layers on in June! Hope the sun shines for you this weekend. I'll be back later with a card I started last night but must go and do some housework now, shame.
