Old Poinsettias

I was having a little sort out of the cardboard drawers where I keep decoupage sheets and odds and ends of printed images when I found a page protector with some Christmas teabag sheets and backers that I designed in 2004! Some had poinsettias on, and I thought they might be just the thing for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown that stipulates Christmas flowers...I haven't done teabag folding for years, but at one time I designed and printed  teabag papers and coordinating backing papers and demonstrated folding around the Costa Blanca Craft Clubs and Fairs ... hence my nickname!

I dithered about how to add a sentiment, as my stamping is not of the best when I can't cover up my bodges and splodges with a bit of judicious painting, but then I realised that if I used a peel-off, it would also qualify as an Unstampabelles entry....problem solved!

So...backing papers and teabags by me, punched centre added to the folded rosette that is mounted on a Nestie  4 label, blue lace strip cut with Cuttlebug Ironworks set, and a peel-off on another Nestie label.
