Red poinsettia on pink mini slimline

Hey crafty friends - Happy Monday, at least where I am in the world! Hope I'm not stretching the inspiration photo for the current Christmas Kickstart challenge but I was inspired to combine many elements, none too obvious, for my card. This is my third and final entry.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white; Hero Arts pine;
Momenta watercolor print; Paper Studio Holiday
Dies - Hero Arts Paper Layering Poinsettia;
A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Set;
My Favorite Things Blueprints 21 (retired);
retired alphabet, Taylored Expression, I think
Other - Park Lane gems;

I spotted some pink ornaments on the tree so was inspired to use a pink background. The rich red in the striped packages directed me to a red poinsettia. I used the green from the tree banner for my circles (inspired by the hanging circles) with the pop of the white for letters. Thanks to Jo and elf Hilary for a fun challenge!!

That's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow with some last of the month inspiration for our Die Cut Diva watercoloring challenge - hope to see you in our gallery! Thanks for stopping by!!
