Poinsettia in Pink

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!

No Thanksgiving card for me today; I have a Christmas card using a beautiful poinsettia image from Unity Stamp Co.  I just bought this stamp during their 'Brown Sale' and could not wait to ink it up!

So this card turned out nothing like I had originally planned.  I really wanted to do 'loose watercoloring' but I could not let myself just slop it on, lol!  I kept playing with it and kept getting further and further from loose watercoloring, and yet it was not really nice and neat either.  So, I ended up fussy cutting it out and creating a loose background with distress inks and the Wrinkle free distress technique.
I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps~

I am also linking  up to Fab 'n Funky- 'Christmas'

As well as Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- 'Baby it's Cold Outside'.
