Christmas Poinsettia- The Flower Challenge

Time for a reminder card for 

You still have time to play along with us!!

We are being sponsored by Top Flight Stamps this month. They are kindly giving our winner an e-gift card for $25. Please check out there website as they have some amazing crafty things there.  
Our guest this month is Tracy from whoistracy.

So here are my card details.
I picked up a few new goodies and wanted to play with them.  I love this poinsettia stamp from Picket Fence and just had to add it to my collection.  
I placed the flower into my Misti and stamped it with some Versamark ink, then white heat embossed the image.  Using my Zigs and a wet paintbrush, I coloured and painted in the flower.  I splattered the whole flower with some white acrylic paint for my spots.
When it was dry, I fussy cut it out and set it aside.

I also just picked up this stitched square die from Paper Smooches.  Using a piece of heavy white cardstock, I die cut the square close to the top of my paper once, then moved the die down and cut the rest of the card front as I wanted it to be all covered.
I pop dotted the flower over the die-cut bkg then added the sentiment from Penny Black at the top.
I simply mounted that onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
