Hello, Diane with you today.
I have to admit, this week I was Pinterest inspired once again!
I saw a similar card and layout/sketch and it was so beautiful,
I just had to make one with a few changes.

I started with just a plain white card stock for the base.
Next came a panel cut from Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock.
I cut a smaller second panel to place on top from

The poinsettia was made using Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die.
I brushed the Poinsettia with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive,
adding a little bit at a time,
then sprinkling with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Cloud Nine Velvet Microfine glitter.

I added a Sue Wilson Festive Collection Snowflakes.

To finish I tied a ribbon around the two panels
and added a sterling silver snowflake.

Just to give you another idea for this card
the original card I saw on Pinterest had greens under the Poinsettia,
no glitter, and no charm...also very pretty!

Join in our challenge with us
which is Holly Days using holly and/or a Poinsettia,

Your poinsettia is so gorgeous! I like the idea of brushing the glue on and letting it dry. Interesting. It sure gives it a nice finish. Loving the microfine glitter lately, too. Very pretty with the snowflake under the poinsettia!
