Vellum poinsettia, my second Christmas card for this year

Good morning everyone. Oh boy did we have the daddy of all storms overnight, the rain was coming down like stair rods! I hope you are all dry, warm and flood free...hugs
I wanted to see what the poinsettia would looked like in vellum so here it is, the jury is still out!


White linen card folded and cut to approx. 6x6, then cut aperture with Nestie.
Own photograph inside printed onto Papermania textured card and cut with same Nestie.
Marianne poinsettia, Cheery Lynn and Memory Box leaf dies.
Will add sentiment when needed :o)

Ohhh, this is beautiful Jackie - I think the "jury" has made their decision: GORGEOUS!

It is crazy hot where I live - 43 yesterday, 43 today, and meant to be 44 tomorrow and 42 the next. It is just horrible and so unusual to have such a string of high temps. The world's weather has gone crazy I think!
