Poinsettia with a Shimmer

Hi all, wow this month sure has gone's almost November and soon it will be Christmas!!! So is anyone actually ready for Christmas? I know I'm no where near ready!!! When you think about it, there's really not much time left, I guess I had better get busy and start doing some of the Christmas gifts that I want to make!!! ....So while I am on the subject of Christmas......I thought I would make a Poinsettia card, this is from the new Penny Black stamps that we got in! 

Products Used
Cardstock: Burgundy, White and Gold Shimmer
Ink: Versamark
Misc.: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Holly Stripes, Tsukineko-Gold Embossing Powder, Copic Marker- R89, Distress Stickles-Aged Mahogany and misc. pearl flourish

So I stamped the poinsettia 3 times with Versamark and then embossed with the gold EP and fussy cut it so that I was able to layer the 3 sizes of petals and then coloured them all in with my Copic marker, then added the distressed stickles to the petals. Pop dotted the Poinsettia over the 3 panels that I embossed with my folder and cut. Stamped and embossed the sentiment and added some pearl flourishes that I coloured with my Copic Marker. So that's it for this card...........the poinsettia and the gold shimmer paper look so much better in person!!! Well I hope you all have a great week and a Happy Halloween!!! Until next time......................
