   I have a bagful containing scraps of plain card. For this card I picked out the scraps of various red and yellow card to cut poisettia petals using Tattered Lace's 2016 poinsettia die. The green card was from the cover of my daughter's old school exercise book. The white dots on the black background are peel off waste.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - Christmas
   Allsorts - Christmas flowers
   The Crafter's Cafe - flowers and/fauna
   Lemon Shortbread - anything goes
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Through The Craft Room Door - anything goes
   Simon Monday - recycle (exercise book cover)
   Beccy's Place - Christmas

  3. This is gorgeous Mary! The red and green look so vibrant and bright against the black card stock. The white dots look fabulous, I love the idea of using the waste from your peel offs. That's a really beautiful die you've used to cut the poinsettias, I love the details on each petal. Beautiful!
