Poinsettia Joy Card - TMS #533

Hello crafty friends! We are starting another sketch challenge today at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I designed this weeks sketch. I hope you will give it a try! It was pretty fun to put together and feel free to substitute any shape for the circles. I went with a poinsettia build a flower die cut by Momenta that I found at Hobby Lobby. The design team did a fantastic job with their creations. Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. Don't forget to have your creation linked by 8 pm EST on Sunday.

Finding joy may be difficult for my family this Christmas. Last Tuesday my only brother passed away and my heart is broken. He is no longer in pain and for that I'm grateful but I'm having a hard time with his passing. I wanted to make this weeks design team card because I designed the sketch, but I don't know how much crafting I'll get done in the weeks ahead. I appreciate all thoughts and prayers!

This Poinsettia Joy Card is entered into the following challenges:
