Paper Players Challenge #24-Ann's Colour Challenge

It's time for another Colour Challenge over at the Paper Players Challenge Blog.  Today Ann is our hostess and she is challenging us to use Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and any Neutral.  I was so excited when she chose these colours because I wanted to use my Deck the Halls Designer Paper!!

I made my own handmade poinsettia on this 5x5 square card!  I made the poinsettia using the "French Foliage" stamp set.  I got the idea from Vicki Burdick and Connie Babert.  Please see THIS POST for links to their blogs.  I inked the small leaf stamp 8 times in Cherry Cobbler and then cut each leaf out by hand.  Then I layered the leaves to create a poinsettia, adhering the leaves together with glue dots.

I used many tools to create this card!! I hope you like it and play along with our Colour Challenge this week!!  To play along simply click HERE to link up your card!!!  As always, please email me if you have any questions and I love to hear from you in my comment box...hint, hint!!
