Stencilled poinsettias

For this card I started off by sponging through a Tim Holtz stencil with grey DI, then I added pale pink to the background. I die cut  "Merry", added several layers and used the inlaid technique. Sequins, silver liquid pearls and "Christmas" made with my Dymo. I added a strip of silver mirri on each side and mounted the panel onto a kraft card base.
Very quick, and I've already started on a second card in different colors and layout, but with the same concept.

This card is for:
    Less Is More - No Stamps
    Happy Little Stampers Christmas - July - Die Cuts
    City Crafter Challenge - #372 Beginning with S (silver mirri card, silver liquid pearls, sequins, stenciling)

      This is really cool, I like how you used gray for the poinsettia's, the inlaid sentiment and of course all the bling.
