Holly Leaves or Poinsettia Flowers?

Happy Day!!!! Which one do you prefer? Over at Hallmark Scrapbook Message Boards we have a weekly challenge...and this time you had to use the Joys of the Season cartridge, but you have a choice of using holly leaves or poinsettia flowers.....I couldn't decide, so I made both!!!! LOL!
On the JOTS cartridge there is a tag feature....you can pick any shape and it will make into a tag. I always need cute tags around the holidays, so I just went ahead and made a few.
I cut one blackout tag to use as the back to cover all my paper piecing and stitching that I did. The "to and from" is from the Makin' the Grade cartridge. The words are already welded together....all you have to do is choose your size and cut!!! I made the shadow and the regular cut the same color to give it a bit of depth.
So I hope you join in over there for the Weekly Challenge. It's lots of fun and there are lots of talented people creating all kinds of inspiration!!!! Thanks for dropping by to see me today...which would you choose....holly leaves or poinsettia flowers?????? HUGS!!!

Gorgeous tags DeeDee! I'm in a swap and haven't finished mine yet. May have to scraplift. Unfortunately I don't think my sewing machine does such a neat stitch. Bummer. xxD

These are gorgeous, DeeDee! I love the sewn borders and the vintage flair. I like both poinsettia and holly, but perhaps holly slightly better. I think I need a Cricut Christmas cartridge. . . ;-D
