Just Add Ink 419

There was an interesting challenge at Just Add Ink this week, which was to just add a twist.

To begin with, I wasn't going to play but there was a suggested twist mentioned in the blog, which was to use a non-traditional set to make a Christmas card. This just stuck with me until I was driven to try something.

Rooted in Nature is absolutely my favourite set in the Annual Catalogue and the skeleton leaves are my favourite within it. So I had in mind that they might circle together to make an acceptable poinsettia  - which turned out to be true.  The motif from Detailed with Love is also acceptably snowflake-ish!

There's a copper foil mat under the main panel, picked up with the copper ribbon trim with a touch of gold from the faceted gems.

It still seems early to be thinking of Christmas cards -  but this was a good entree to the season!
