Plaid Peace on Earth and Poinsettias From Longwood

Happy Friday, peeps! I have a quick card today using the sketch from FMS and the theme from Christmas Kickstart:

And here we go:

I found this pretty poinsettia paper in one of my (many) Christmas 6x6 pads, so I diecut a rectangle, added a little topper of Merry Merlot and a triple diecut buffalo plaid "peace":

I had a chipboard button that I sponged with some Mossy Meadow ink and added a soft twine bow:

It all went on a Naturals White cardbase that I embossed with an Altenew cover plate!  And it is in the mail as we speak!  And if you like poinsettias, Longwood Gardens has an interesting article about them's got great photos too!  I guarantee you'll enjoy it!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Wow! I love how you've done up the patterned paper! The Merlot topper and plaid peace are perfect embellishments! Love the little button too! Very interesting article about the poinsettia! I would love to visit your nursery! It certainly outshines the little greenhouse I remember from childhood!
