Poinsettia

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz sketch challenge.  The sketch although seems simple, had me flummoxed, not that it takes much these days. In the end I decided to look through my dies and found this little one, that I had last Christmas, but can't for the life of me remember from where.

Sounds like I am losing myself? the last couple of months I felt like I am, Yep! since my DVT I have been quite unwell and now I have finished the tablets I am starting to feel better. I think I may have had side effects from them, which made me unwell to make me well!

Anyhow enough of the moans, here is my card.

poinsettia die - If anyone knows I can give credit!
dp - ADB Designs
ribbon - stash
Nuvo Crystal Drops

this is the sketch

A beautiful card Faith, a great take on the sketch.
I'm sorry to hear that your medication has been making you feel poorly, I hope they have done the trick and you will now feel much better.

Faith, those papers are just gorgeous. Love the dies with that on your beautiful card. Don't beat yourself up - give yourself time to recovery...your body has been through a lot. Take care of yourself dear friend.

Wow Faith, this card is stunning! Loving the papers and of course the poinsettia die cuts. They are so pretty and detailed-I love when the details show well. I have some dies where the details don't show well. Medication is funny like that, what makes you well also makes you feel unwell. That's the way my Lupus and RA meds do. I feel terrible on them, but great off of them...most of the time anyway. Glad you are done them and now hopefully you are good to go. But still hope the doctor will keep an eye on this as I've heard that once you have had one DVT you are at risk for another. So keep vigilant!!! Hugs, Brenda

Beautiful work Faith. The poinsettia die is perfect with the designer papers. Glad you're feeling better.

What a beautifully designed poinsettia card - I just love the sketch you followed to create this! Unfortunately, taking meds always seems to cause unwanted side effects for me as well, but hopefully you're on the mend now and will soon feel much more like yourself!

Faith this is one beautiful card, so unique and so very pretty. So glad you have finished the tablets and yes they can often make you feel unwell but are a necessary evil. So glad you are on the mend and thinking of you x

Great sketch and wonderful way you used it.
Love the combination of papers and flowers.

MaryH said...

It's just beautiful. Brilliant colors, pretty papers and dies, and I like the way you've interpreted this sketch very much. Good job. And I hope that now the meds are done, that you truly do start to feel better. I hope the DVT is all gone by now, and even though you weren't feeling tip-top, you've still managed to ace this sketch most wonderfully. TFS & Hugs
