Love, joy, peace - poinsettia

Today, I bring you tidings of love, joy and peace with this pretty poinsettia from Winnie & Walter (In bloom: Elsa's flora). I have had this set for several years and I keep reaching for this poinsettia for my Christmas cards.

I heat embossed the poinsettia in white, applied several Altenew inks using a finger dauber and then fussy cut the image. For the background, I applied white embossing paste through a stencil that I cut using the Leaf effect cutaway die by W&W. The sentiment is from the Sentimental: Winter set by W&W. I used the darkest of the Altenew inks (Grapevine) to add a strip of colour to my card base before adhering my panel.
