Less is More Week 144 Fireworks

Hello everyone

I haven't joined in the Less is More challenge for a couple of weeks due to lack of time but when I saw what it was this morning it was a bit like deja vu.  Here are the details:

We have a slightly different colour challenge for you.  We want to see how our photo inspires you and see cards that have ...
Dark background with a splash of colour(s)

I thought I'd use my black ribbed card again and made up a 5x7 card blank.  I stamped my Woodware Poinsettia Box in Versamark and embossed with gold e/p.  I used my Vintage Pearly Pallet from Imagination Crafts to colour the poinsettias and added some Liquid Pearls for the centres.

Very strange weather at the moment - we've had really warm sunshine earlier but then it got very windy and lashings of it's changed back again!

Have a good weekend and happy crafting.
