A Perfect Sentiment - Poinsettia Christmas

My all time favourite die for Christmas card is the Spellbinders Poinsettia.
I have used this countless times and not just at Christmas time as it is a die
that you can use on any card throughout the year.
But this week at  The Perfect Sentiment
I was so happy that they picked this very flower for their latest challenge.
You can find it HERE Whoo Hoo

So off to my little craft room I went and got my favourite die out and
here is what I made this time.... there will be more with colour

I thought I would go way out of the normal Christmas colours
 for this one and do all neutral.
Just a little white silver and cream and of course a little sparkle.
I used basic white and topped with metallic glitter card
(which is a little hard to see) before attaching the
neutral parchment paper.
I embossed silver paper with Swiss Dots and cut out a
Spellbinder Flourish and a Quinn Memory Box Die
for the backing of my poinsettia flower with the sparkle paper.
Used a silver glitter pen on the centres
 and Rainbow Kindy Glitz to the flower.
The sentiment is from Gina K and heat embossed in white.
Finished with some tiny rhinestones.
