Poinsettia Sparkle

This is this weeks card for
   which this weeks is a sketch challenge
I thought I would be a little bit christmassy this week. Its a square card with a pretty red backing paper on first. The Poinsettia have been die cut from white glitter card using the Spellbinders die set. I have cut the leaves from green pearlescent card using the largest flower die and cutting the petals up to look like leaves.
The greeting is stamped using a Creative Expressions stamp and cut out using a spellbinders tag die and has an added green layer. I have finished off with red gems on the tag and in the centre of the flowers and clear gems in the top right corner to match the sketch. A very simple design, have a go and join us at The Secret Crafter Challenge this week.
