CASE-ing the Catty #13

This week the Team at CASE-ing the Catty are focusing on cards featured in the Holiday Catty.

Yesterday I had a wonderful day out with friends & bought a couple of sweet little dies.  I have used them on this card, which was inspired by the tree card at the top of page 24:-

I have curled each layer of the poinsettia blooms & added some gold glitter ink to the stamens.  A tiny rhinestone, coloured with the darkest daffodil blendability completes each flower.  I also coloured some white baker's twine with the lightest cherry blendability for the bow.  The brushed gold watering can is popped up on dimensionals & layered over a strip of striped sticker from the retired Season of Sweets Designer packaging kit, as well as a garden green strip.  A simple embossed border finishes off the card.

You can see all the fabulous inspiration pieces by the Design Team & play along in the challenge here (click on the graphic).
