Challenge me a Christmas Card 23

Welcome back to Challenge me a Christmas card! For this card, Betty Keefe and Leslie O'Connor both challenged me to join in with an online challenge called Merry Monday.  The challenge was to use red, white and grey. Now, the sentiment looks black, I grant you, but I stamped it in Grey Versafine ink and then clear embossed it, and it looks quite black now.  I actually missed entering this challenge when it was posted, but I still had it written down on my list of challenges after it had closed - serves me right for not double checking dates!

Yes, another card using Hero Arts Peace Poinsettia - I hope you're not sick of them, because I'm not!
For this card, I was inspired by a card posted earlier this month my Erum Jasneem at VIBGYOR Krafts - she was a guest of Taheerah Atchia on day 6 of her Advent Calendar event. I was inspired by the red cardstock with white embossed flowers on Erum's card.
I actually cheated on the red, white and grey part - because the poinsettias are coloured with four different colours - mid pink, pale pink, white and red, and then a touch of Wink of Stella on the highlights.  I was tempted to add some gold to the centre of each bloom, but I resisted.

 Thanks so much for visiting :)
