Poinsettia bargain

Hello, and thanks for visiting today, just thought I'd share a very simple card that's nice and flat for the post.  I bought this Tim Holtz  Thinlits set from Ebay for about a third of it's normal price and it was new, such a bargain!  I used the Tim Holtz Linen background stamp with Pumice stone DI and then spritzed with Tarnished Brass stain, added a piece of torn gold handmade paper before adding the die cut poinsettia.
That's another for the box, think I need to write them out as I know there's not nearly enough, and I'll need to buy some!

I am entering this at:
  Stamping Sensations - Floral Fancies
  Allsorts - CAS
Thanks for calling in, I do appreciate it, especially as I've been such an intermittent blogger of late, hopefully this will be a better week.

Beautiful card, the linen looks fabulous behind the Poinsettias. How wonderful to find nice dies at 1/3 the price :) Cheers, Shirleyxx

Such a beautiful card, the warm colours and air of elegance.
I resorted to some of my cards being shop bought this year, it was just impossiblel to make each and every card. I always promise myself to begin earlier in the year but I never do!
