Season of Blessings

I began working on a card using a stamped poinsettia image I have wanted to use since I received it a few weeks ago.  It has been sitting atop my craft table, printed onto one of my favorite papers I have used quite often:  Cloud 9 Design Harvest Holidays.  The image is by Teri at Delicious Doodles and can be found ~HERE~.  I started with a basic white card stock, pearlized and metallic olive green paper from the DCWV Luxury Stack, and my poinsettia images (printed on white and on the Harvest Holiday papers).  I then cut a scallop from Lacy Labels at 3" from another print, same HH stack.  I layered the poinsettia images first with the all white, then paper pieced the HH poinsettia on top with foam squares.  I added some white gel pen and red Studio G glitter glue atop the center of the poinsettia.  Before applying all of the elements to the card, I embossed my green luxury paper with my new argyle embossing folder.  I then glued a strip of lace and applied the paper piecing.  The sentiment is one from the Cutting Cafe.  I simply cut it out by hand and inked the edges with an olive green Studio G ink pad.  I spread a bit of glitter glue around the edge of the card and added a few red rhinestones.
 Although I am not entering the challenge with this creation, I did use a sketch offered by Bo Bunny
