52 CCT Theme Challenge #1

Welcome again to another fabulous 52CCT challenge! Yep, you're still stuck with me as hostess this week--sorry, January is long when I'm in charge! ;) This week is a theme challenge, and I've chosen to make you all create something with Christmas Flowers! :) Pop on over to Jacqueline's blog for two more fabulous cards, as well! She is a fantastic stamper! :)

Here's my first card~

Second card~

Well, what are your thoughts? I prefer the poinsettia pot, myself. It turned out more gorgeous than I thought it would. Seriously. I'm having issues and it almost made me cry, I was so happy with it! Maybe I need medication...we'll leave that to the experts! I tried to take pictures to show off the shine, as I used silver embossing and a glitter gel pen AND rhinestone. LOT's of shine...didn't come out well in the pics. Oh, well! ;) Many thanks to my good friend, Jeni, for suggesting PINK poinsettias--much prettier than any other color for this card! Merry stamping, friends!!!

I don't think I can chose between the two, they are so different in style and each has its own appeal.

I think these are both great in different ways. I like the embossing on the first card, the flower seems to really pop against it but the jug of poinsettias is really glittery and gorgeous and I love it against the misty background. Fabulous work Mynnette!

Two gorgeous cards, but the tin of flowers is amazing, such a gorgeous look embossed in silver and coloured so delicately! Stunning!
