Have you seen her gorgeous Muse card this week? I have spent countless hours just pondering what to do, what to do ... wanting it to be perfect!! Well, my kind of imperfect perfect =]
Searching through my stash only proved that I'm totally lacking an actual Poinsettia ... then I remembered that the flower, as we see it, are actually its leaves - BAM!
I knew that the leaves from my Bold Blossoms dies by Julie Ebersole would be stunning immediately ... Bold Blooms stamps a recent, very much appreciated gift from another of my wonderful blogging friends!!! [xoxo]
Here goes... are you ready?

OH shoot! I wanted to make my card and get uploaded today and forgot! Dang it! Well next time.
