Poinsettia Card

I have been sooooooo busy making Christmas card and have loads to upload over the next few days.

The first of the bunch is a beautiful card for a close family friend and I know she would appreciate a more traditional card rather than the stamped images which I normally go for.  So here it is....

It is a Poinsettia card, the gold pointsettia are die cut of mirri card and the large red glitter pointsettia is the same die, but altered.  The white card is a beautiful embossed card, you can just about see it in the close up picture. 

The poinsettia die is a Marianne Creatable one. I have used this a lot for my Christmas cards. 

To make the large red poinsettia, I cut 3 large and 1 medium petal die plus a small circle.  I applied Glossy Accents and fine glitter to all petals, when it was dry I cut the 3 large petals into pieces and stuck them to the circle in two layers then the medium die on top.  Took a little time but worth it in the end.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
