Pink Poinsettia with Glam

This week Flourishes has a special challenge for their Release week -FLLCOCT13-Color Challenge with a twist!  We are to create a Christmas Design without the use of the color Red or Green.  I love to use poinsettias on Christmas cards so I chose to use a pink poinsettia on my entry. Using Flourishes Stamp from "Poinsettias and Boxwood", I stamped the flower twice on pink cardstock scraps with versamark and embossed with Ranger Gold EP. I cut both out and formed into a 3D flower.  I used a deeper pink card base from DCWV pack and layered with GKD gold metallic cardstock and then a mat of striped pattern from MME. Added a strip of the gold cs topped with a rick rack from Joann's and stamped a sentiment "Joy to the World" from Flourishes "Alleluia" in gold embossing.  I then attached the Poinsettia to which I added some Gala Glitz Gold from Art Glitter  to the center using Art Glitter glue. The flower was attached with foam tape.
Wish me luck with this challenge.  Winners will  receive the entire October release from Flourishes.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
