Poinsettia Thank You (Poppystamps dies/Hero Arts stamp)

Hi, everyone!  I'm back again today and this time I've gone metallic!  I love my Poppystamps Blooming Poinsettia dies and decided to make a thank-you card for after Christmas.  I know I'm going to need it.


The sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings and I heat-embossed it in silver on a vellum banner (I used part of the "Thank you for your friendship" sentiment).  The sparkly silver strip is from the dollar store - it's the good stuff because none of the glitter fell off!
