Gold Poinsettias

I love poinsettias-no matter what the color. And today I'm using gold ones-so pretty. I'm using the Verve November sketch & photo inspiration challenge week 3 for this card.

I used Our Daily Bread Designs poinsettia dies and gold shimmer cardstock to cut and emboss the flowers. I formed them slightly with a bone folder and a foam pad and stylus. I layered them together with glue dots and added a rhinestone to the center. The patterned papers are from The Paper Studio Antiquity pack. The gold strip on the side is some holographic paper full of stars-it's so pretty in real life, but I had a hard time capturing it on camera. I added some rhinestone swirls (Recollections) to he strip/ I cut some ferns from the same paper pack with Tattered Lace Ornate Leaves die set (love this set). I stamped the sentiment (Verve Glad Tidings stamp set) on a scrap of  Very Vanilla cardstock with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Hampton Art gold embossing powder. This will be a hand delivered card, so I could use lots of bling and layers.

I will also enter this card in the following challenges:
Our Daily Bread Designs-Blessings Word Challenge-use at least four of the letters in the word Blessings as your recipe (B-bling; e- embossing; I- ink, G-gold; S-swirls used here)
Creative Knockouts-Bling is the Thing
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards-Your Favorite Holiday (That would be Christmas:)

Hope you like. Please leave a message-I like hearing from other crafters!
