Designed2Delight Artist's Challenge {December Freebie #1}

Alrighty, I finished my card using the first free Designed2Delight digital stamp of December! This gorgeous Poinsettia stamp was so fun to work with and color! I could not help but try to create a white flower with touches of pink. You know the ones, right? They are so pretty!

I printed the image out 3 times on watercolor paper to create the three layers of the flower. I added some very watered down and soft touches of SU!'s Blushing Bride to the petals, and used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and flower center.

The black outline of the image inspired the black card base, sentiment, and button thread. It adds a lot of contrast in real life.

Here's a little look inside!

 Be sure to grab this freebie before it is too late! We would love to see your holiday projects created with it! And you will receive another free digital stamp from Designed2Delight just for playing this week!

Stop back by my blog tomorrow for Day 4 of my very favorite Warm & Cozy Winter Recipes!

Have the most creative day!
