Slimline Poinsettia

I discovered the Dirty Dozen Christmas (Sketch) Challenges on SCS this year and have enjoyed making a card each month. The card I made with this month's sketch is extremely simple... but that's okay. Sometimes that's just what I need.

The poinsettia on the card was created with 2-step stamping. When I first got into card-making/stamping, I did a lot of these kinds of images so this is kind of old-school. I do love to color and don't see myself giving up that enjoyment, but I also like the look of 2-step stamping.


This month's sketch:



Here's my card:


I did color the flower center (with a single Copic Marker) but it really doesn't show up much because I added three rhinestones to that area.
