     This week I made a pot of poinsettias.  I plan to give this Christmas card to my Mom.  I've been wanting to turn a flower pot Fancy Fold in to a stand alone card using the Peaceful Poinsettia die yet keep the pull away tag.
     I started out with Christmas Collection 2014 as well as some sparkly red paper I picked up at Michaels.  Then I had tons of fun just die cutting away using Peaceful Poinsettia, Circle Ornaments,
Beautiful Borders and Fancy Foliage
     The border on the flower pot has a layer of vellum just to soften it a bit.  The sentiment is from the Holly Wreath set.
    You'll want to visit the rest of the Challenge Team for more inspiration on this challenge.
 
    
      To see all the projects created for ODBDSLC218, to join the challenge and see the rules click here. You have until November 30th at 8:00pm EDT to enter.

     I hope you have a safe and fun Thanksgiving!!  Remember those BLESSINGS!!
