CR84FN33 - Week 2

This is week #2 of  CR84FN33 challenge.  It is nice to have a second week to  play with the colors as they can inspire so many different ideas.

This week I decided to create another Christmas in July card using the Chapel Road Artstamps Poinsettias.

The background of the card and the  center of the doily is a holly image from the Class Act - Holly Plate.
I stamped repeatedly the image using Memento Grey Tuxedo on the background and on the center of the doily.

The sentiment is from the same plate and is stamped using Ranger black archival ink.

The poinsettias are from the Class Act Poinsettia Plate stamped in Versafine Smokey Grey on white cardstock. I colored them using a red and pink watercolor pencils with some shading of grey.

The rest was a matter of layering and a lovely doily.
