You better not cry! - Artsystamper Challenge

Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today a new challenge starts over at Artsystamper and the winner will receive a wonderful prize from their Etsy store! 

We are also collaborating with Double Trouble Challenges.

I am also sharing my DT creation, made using Beverly's beautiful digital Poinsettia stamps and paper collection, which you can find HERE and if you purchase this, you also get the wonderful Seaside Holiday set free (offer available through December 24th) 

Here I have used the Poinsettia paper from the collection, some wood texture paper and a strip of corrugated card from my own stash. I adhered all layers of paper on to a piece of kraft card stock.

Here I have layered two of the Poinsettia stamps from the kit using pop-dots. 

Before I adhered the Poinsettia, I layered a few Holiday Greens die, cut also from Kraft card stock. 
Each has been distressed using Walnut stain distress ink.  To finish my card, I have printed out the quote 'you better not cry' as I thought it fitted this darling vintage photo perfectly! 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit! Hugs, Zowie xx
