Happy Sunday and welcome to another My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette's Challenge.  When I saw this week's palette, I immediately thought Christmas!  I know, Christmas in May, but I have actually been creating quite a few Christmas cards already.  Last year, I decided not to mass product my Christmas cards but rather to do a variety throughout the year.  The actual result was that I still had a mad dash to fnish them in November/December.  Anyways, enough rambling, onto today's card.  I used the MTME Perfect Poinsettas.  I cut them out on cream paper and slightly inked the edges.  The music note paper is MTME Cheerful Musical Magic.
Thanks so much to those of you who are playing along. I enjoy visiting your blogs and seeing what you've been up to each week!

Be sure to check out the design team member's creations as well:

Here's the detail on how the challenge works:
•You can use the palette on ANY type of project! While participation with products from My Time Made Easy ™ LLC is appreciated, it is not required to participate. You can use products from ANY company.

•The palette month will run from the 2nd Sunday of every month, to the 2nd Saturday of the following month, with the Winner announced that 2nd Sunday of the Palette Challenge.

  1. I was just thinking about my Christmas cards today! I create one design each year and for the last 3 years have been doing them the week before Christmas. But not this year! I have made a start putting together some goodies for the design
    I love poinsettas. The tag is just the thing to finish it off.

  2. Simple and beautiful. Great job! :)

  3. Wow, Lynn, that bloom is gorgeous against the maroon paper!

  4. Gorgeous, as usual! I love this Christmas card! It's never too late to get started, I agree! That flower is so pretty and I love how you used the colors!

  5. okay, so if it's not too early to make Christmas cards, it must not be too early to choose my Christmas card...teehee...I'm thinking this is the one, but it's still early!!I just adore poinsettias and paired with music paper? Adore :) I'm assuming all these cards for MTME are cut with your Cricut? may not be until Christmas holidays that I can really learn how to use mine...BUT "I am still blessed." ;)

  6. Lynn, that flower is gorgeous! Hope you're havin' a fun weekend! :)

  7. Way to go on starting the Christmas cards, Lynn! Love your focal point and your sweet stitching! Hoping to take inspiration from you to avoid the mad dash in December :)

  8. Love your layered poinsettia's, so pretty! I've been in the mood to make some x-mas cards lately too, good thing the weather has been cold, easier to get in 'that' mood for the holidays. :)

  9. If I had made this, I would be keeping it for myself. It's super gorgeous and I love that it doesn't use the traditional Christmas colours! The light pink bloom looks amazing against the darker music paper.
