Pearls and Poinsettia

Good morning and a very Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends and family!  Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day with family and friends!

Linda has asked us to create a card in black and white with a pop of color for the Ways to Use It challenge today over at Splitcoast.

My card base is a standard A2 size that's been dry embossed.  Layered over that is a piece of teal card stock topped by a piece of white card stock that also has been dry embossed.  I added a pearl and silver swirl over top of both layers.

My poinsettia has been made by inking and coloring some plain white card stock first with Distress Inks, then some Distress Stains, followed by more Distress Ink.  Then I used some Glue n' Seal and Distress Stickles Dry Glitter for some pizzazz.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. Pure Luxury in Black and White, unknown Bazzill scrap
Ink:  Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers
Stamps:  none
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro; Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die; Couture Creations Tied together embossing folder; Cuttlebug Holly embossing folder; Distress Stains in Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass and Brushed Pewter; sponges, water spritzer, heat gun, Ranger Glue n' Seal, Distress Stickles Dry Glitter in Clear Rock Candy, K & Company Adhesive Gems, paper piercer, Spare Parts by the Paper Studio Antique Gemstone Brads, craft mat

Thanks for joining me today!
