Poinsettia tag

I have made it back with a Christmas card, at last. It seems I work better under pressure and the deadline is too far away! Though I have tried each week to be inspired, I have not managed to make a card I was happy with. Also, I don't have any new Christmas stamps. Normally I buy one set a year and make most of my cards along the same lines. I've banned myself from anything new for a bit but I'll give in sooner or later. I have my eye on a few things.

I'm fairly pleased with this. I made it for the 52CCT challenge to use markers. I coloured the flower with markers and also edged the tag and the backing with a gold Sharpie. I printed the tag. I'm tired of all my Christmas word stamps and would like some new ones but I'll print in the meantime. If anyone knows some good ones do let me know and I'll add them to my list. 
I'm also pleased that I use this backing paper. It is not specifically Christmassy (and is a lovely apple green colour not grey as it looks here) but I think does the job and I'm glad it's not all covered up.
So there we are. No 2! But no rush.


  1. Beautiful poinsettia! Love the dimension you've achieved with it!

  2. Such an elegant card. Love the bold poinsettia and the way you've edged the card too. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  3. Lovely papers and marvelous poinsettia Alison.
