For you

Hello my firends! I feel like it has been so long since I posted a card. I have had a very busy week. Anyway, Last Monday night I stamped a couple of cards and tonight I want to show you one of them. I made this card for Potluck Friday Challenge over at Stamp TV. The challenge is to create "A card on card". So I tried another technique from the SCS Resources: Joy Fold card.
For my card I used Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss and Pure Luxury Ivory CS . The pretty papers are from memory Box Collection. I sponged the borders with Memento Rich Cocoa and Dessert Sand, then I used my sewing machine and added some zig zag stitches.
For the poinsettia: I stamped the flower on Pure Luxury Ivory CS using Chocolate chip Craft Ink , then I added some Clear embossing powder and heat embossed. After that I colored the image using daubers and inks: Dark pink , Real Red & Cranberry Crisp, then I added some Gold Stickles, cut it out and positioned it on a circle piece already cut, embossed and sponged .
The sentiment was stamped in Ivory CS using Memento Rich Cocoa and sponged with dark Pink Ink.

I am submitting this card for Color Throwdown Challenge# 69: Chocolate, Olive (optional), Cream and red.

Card recipe:
