Poinsettia Christmas

Finally got a chance to do a challenge. I went to Clean & Simple. I decided that for the C&S challenges, I will try my best to make 3 identical/similar cards. That way, I'll can build a stash faster and they will be great for gifts later!

For these cards, I used my poinsettia embossing folder and tried my best to rub red ink only on the raised portion. Then used a nestabilities die for the sentiment and just added ribbon and a poinsettia embellishment. It's as simple as that!
I forgot to mention, this is my first 3 cards out of the many cards I plan to send to Operation Write Home! Last year, I donated 20 cards (I started late last year) and I really want to donate more this year so I'm starting early! :)
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
