Poinsettia or Periwinkle?

fortnight we are up to the letter and so for our theme Bettina has chosen Red Poinsettia

The Sponsor for the challenge is Meljen designs

For my card I have used a lovely new Woodware stamp and although it is not a poinsettia stamp in fact it is called periwinkle I thought it looked gorgeous in red spectrum Noir pens. I have kept the design and layout simple because I think an over crowded card would detract from the image.  

Here are some Challenge I am playing along with:

Brown Sugar - Anything goes
Allsorts - Early Christmas makes
Christmas Cards - Anything Goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra - Anything Christmas
Daring Cardmakers - Clean & Simple

Sparkle N Sprinkle - Anying Goes with Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking
