Christmas Greetings

Hi All

I have started to try and do some Christmas cards... but it has been proving difficult due to the new job. My brain is not what it used to be and the learning is making me very tired.. lol.. But I am getting there, I think, although some days I take two steps forward and five back.
The card I would like to share with you started life by me wanting to use a Poinsettia mask that I have had for a long time but never used. I inked through the mask with CS Scarlett Woman colour cloud ink. As there are 4 different styles on the same mask I decided just to ink through them all to see what they looked like.
I then fussy cut around the poinsettia and attached it to my base card. The sentiment is from Tattered Lace.
A few bits of bling finishes the card. I quite like the way it turned out and great if you need a card in a hurry.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
CCC # 17
crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge #342
the holly and ivy christmas challenge 10 - AG
avenue 613 Challenge # 199 Anything Goes / Optional Twist Monochrome
