ABC Christmas Challenge - R is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today, and the theme is:

'R is for Red Poinsettias'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs:
Prize - 4 images of the winner's choice!

I found a poinsettia border stamp in a set by Hobbycraft called 'Falalalala', which I stamped a couple of times either side of a Penny Black sentiment, then simply coloured the images using watercolour pencils, then added a red border cut using my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' border punch.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
