Color Dare #71

Christmas poinsettia, anyone?  The challenge for this week of Cranberry and Ponderosa Pine was a great combination for this gift topper.  I like it on top of a pint jar, but you could also attach it to the side and use some Sparkle and Shine fabric on the top. Change the colors up a bit for a birthday gift and turn the poinsettia into a water lily.

Cut 4 layers from cranberry cardstock, Artiste cartridge, page 73, accent 1.  One each - 3", 2.75", 2.5", 2".  Stamp one side of each layer with a background design -I used the music notes from Universal backgrounds D1477 (not in current catalog but still available).  Flip the layers so it alternates plain/stamped.  Curl the edges of the petals, assemble with tape in the center.  I picked one layer and added red Glitz after assembly.  The leaves are cut from ponderosa pine cardstock, Artiste, page 54, accent 4.  The center is from Magical Days, again in Ponderosa. 

See what you can create with Cranberry and Ponderosa Pine and upload a picture at Color My Heart!
