Poinsettia Christmas Card

 I made this card following a sketch from Truly Scrumptious but made it a rectangle rather than a square.
I stamped the Poinsettia with Versamark and embossed with gold EP. Cut with a circle die and layered onto a scalloped circle. Added gold ribbon to the wine mat before attaching image. Stamped sentiment and cut with a tag die. Edged that with gold marker. Finished with pearls in center of flower.

Challenges entered:
Stamp TV Color Challenge: Use wine, gold, and ivory.
Truly Scrumptious Challenge: Use sketch shown on right. Optional extra challenge is 'petals, pearls & pins' - use a combination of any or all three. I used the pearls and my petals are the stamped poinsettia.
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Relish to embellish. Used pearls and ribbon.
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge: Use red and gold. Wine is a color of red.
