Tattered Poinsettia

I have a few "poinsettia" dies.....
I didn't think I needed the TH Alterations Tattered Poinsettia die....
I soon found out how wrong I was and I had to get it after seeing it
on several other blogs and Pinterest.
I think what really the "selling point" to me was, is when he came out
with the embossing folder for it...Wowza!!
It is beautiful, I wish you could see all the texture on this, it is gorgeous!!
I cut two of each layer and "painted" on gold Stickles after running it thru the
embossing process!!
At Joan's Gardens this week her challenge is
use a product sold at Joan Gardens
use white and gold
use an embossing folder
use pearls
At Really Reasonable Ribbon the challenge is Christmas/Winter and Holiday
and to use ribbon, lace, or trim somewhere on your project
At Scrapping 4 Fun the challenge is Christmas/Holiday

and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"
The background of my card is the additional embossing folder that comes with
the TH poinsettia one, it is the exact tattered poinsettias, only little!!
My Holly Flourish is cut in gold metallic paper and is a Cheery Lynn Designs die
The white branch is from Impression Obsession
I used gold pearls for the center of my flower and also for my "berries"
I added gold metallic stretchy cord trim and tied a crystal on the bow.
I can't wait to make more of these poinsettias in other colors!!

This is just a stunning card. Wow! I may have to invest in that poinsettia die. I love the gold pearls, and I would have never thought of adding a crystal to the gold bow. You have inspired me. :o) Beautiful card for Joan's challenge this week.

Very elegant card - I don't have the embossing folder yet but have ordered it. I have used the die several times. By the looks of this card they are the perfect match. Great job -
