Hero Arts Poinsettia + ctd423

Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend, it has been super cold here, think -16 degrees and such; yesterday we had wind gusts up to 30 mph with snow. Brrr!! And yes, we were out in these chilly temps multiple times - we're crazy. ;)

But today I found some time to create a little treat sack for my secret santa gift, the recipient LOVES pink...and it's even better when it's filled with treats, don't you agree?

I folded the bottom portion of the sack up and adhered with sticky tape along 3 sides, this created two small pockets - I LOVE making these! I used inspiration from ctd423 for my colors. The poinsettia was embossed with sparkle embossing powder on vellum and colored with Copics, the center of each layer is red feathering out to pink; the center is yellow, I added some yellow liquid pearls for a bit more dimension. The leaves were cut with MFT layered leaves dies from both vellum and Echo Park polka dot paper. I sponged the edges of the sack with Picked Raspberry.

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a great week!
