Happy Birthday

A birthday card using a traditional Christmas Poinsettia flower - well that was a bit tricky as I kept wanting to make this a gorgeous red poinsettia.  The image is stamped in red ink and embossed with pearl white embossing powder giving it a lovely soft outline. Then I used distress inks to water colour the flower in autumn (orange) shades, with a touch of red and green...so I can post this to Seize the Birthday challenge with the Topping: Monochromatic Orange. Also posting to Shopping Our Stash #177 - use a holiday stamp set to make a non-holiday card 
Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
