The black in the inspiration for this card added an interesting twist to the commonly used Christmas colors. The black anchors the card while the pine background gives it a soft feel. I made the poinsettia using the 'Joy of the Season' Cricut cartridge and a technique my friend Antonieta found in a tutorial.

I will be making many more of this flower. Enjoy!
