Ain't gonna lie. These two cards took awhile. Definitely a labor of love!

The Sparkling Poinsettias are from the Sparkling Poinsettias stamps and dies. I stamped and heat embossed them in gold. All of the other stamps, dies, and papers are from Festive Holly Creative Essentials. I used Prismacolor pencils to color in all of the cardinals and ivy.

Thanks for stopping by!
