CAS Christmas Card Challenge and a Happy 3rd Bithday

Hi Everyone, it's time for a new challenge and a birthday celebration at CAS Christmas.
As a part of the celebration there will be some prizes, but remember to be eligible your card has to follow the rules and be "Clean and Simple".

Loll our host wants us to create something with Kraft, Red and White, I always think of them as the perfect Christmas colours and one of my favourite combinations.

 
Also please welcome Gundi (Papierelle) as our Guest Designer for this month and drop by her blog to see her card.


Here's my card for the challenge, I stamped my poinsettia in white ink coloured it with pencils and then heat embossed in clear embossing powder.
The clear embossing gives a very light colour on the white. For a whiter image it's better to use either white on white (ink and powder) or Versamark and white powder. I actually like the ghosted print of the poinsettia.

Here's a close up of the image.
