Enjoy The Season Xmas Card

Created this Clean & Simple with style Christmas card using colour coral. Used Tim Holtz Poinsettia die along with the TH negative cut from the die. Used TH Distress Ink on edges of Poinsettia. Stamped Hero Arts banner & sentiment. As an after thought I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched die to make a scrapbook border around the Poinsettia. Added 2 enamel dots for embellishment.
