Christmas sentiment

This card may not look like it, but it is made with scraps of paper from former projects.  JustRite has challenged us to make a card with our scraps.  I recently went through all of my papers and removed the scraps that I tend to tuck back in.  I did not have many Holiday papers.  The stamped image is from JustRite "Cristmas Nested Sentiments.  The scrap of red I had was from a 12 x 12 so I made three Poinsettia using the new Spellbinder die.  I embossed and then distressed the veins with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  I removed them from the die and added Distress Ink Aged Mahogany.  I added a gem center from Kaiser Kraft that I used on a different project a few weeks ago. The leaves are a scrap and are really the flower petals.  The frame is a scrap from My Minds Eye  (I had left the company name on the scrap) that I used last year and then cut with the Spellbinder Labels 22.  the white and red glitter paper were scraps and I do not remember the company at this time.  Hope you enjoy
