I made this card using Stamp TV Technique - Spotlighting. I used Melanie Muechinger’s stamp set called A Year of Flowers. I stamped one poinsettia, masked it and stamped it two more times. I used the grid on my craft mat to help me line up the stamps when I stamp the flowers so I could repeat the same stamp pattern. The spotlighted image was cut with a CM circle cutter. I used a dubber with Memento Rich Cocoa. The card stock is Pure Luxury white from Gina K. The ink is SU Rose Red. Then I colored it with Copic markers. The base card is Pure Luxury white. The red and tartan are from a Christmas pack by DCWV. I used CM oval and circle cutting system to cut out the images. The red accent is EK Success Large Flourish Punch. I love this punch. A new challenge for me is Daring Card Makers. Their challenge is to use tartan somewhere on the card. I had to look up the word. I love it when I learn something new. Tartan is a woolen cloth woven with stripes crossing at right angles, worn by Scottish Highlanders. I should have know that. My dad was Scottish and was asked to wear a kilt. He refused. He was 6'2' and was afraid it would be to short. LOL!!
I am really happy with the way this card turn out. So let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping!

Lovely card - fancy needing to look up the word Tartan even though you dad is Scottish, thanks for the chuckle that gave me!
