Poinsettia greetings

This gorgeous poinsettia is from a retired Stampin Up set called Poinsettia Greetings. I stamped it twice and cut out the middle part and mounted it again to create dimension. The cuttlebug folder is called Holly Ribbons and is actually the largest folder you can buy. It fits an entire A2 card front whereas the others don't. I did this card for the Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential challenge found here. The challenge was to make a card with flowers in mind and of course Poinsettias count as flowers, lol! Real ones don't last very long at my house but I do love them.
Stamps: Poinsettia Greetings, Seasons greetings
Paper: Whisper white, purely pomegranate
Ink: garden green, basic black, purely pomegranate/bravo burgandy
Other: brads, ribbon, sakura glitter pen/crystal effects (poinsettia berries), cuttlebug folder, spellbinders circles.
