Sparkly Poinsettias

I have a sparkly poinsettia card for you today!


The Layered Poinsettia die set is by Spellbinders and I cut them out of snippets of white card - the label is from Oval Bliss also by Spellbinders and was also cut out of a snippet.  I sprayed all the separate poinsettia layers with spray adhesive and sprinkled with glitter.  I glued two of each together and popped a jewel in the centre. The sentiment is from the set of stamps that goes with the dies.  I didn't use the stamps on the poinsettias as I just wanted them white and sparkly.  The red layer is another off cut of card from my bit box and the sentiment is inked with Festive Berries Distress Ink and I added glitter around the edge with my quickie glue pen.  There is so much sparkle in real life!

I would like to enter the following fabulous challenges:

Scraps of Life - April Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything goes as long as its Christmas.
The Craft Barn - Red and White and a bit of Black.
Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 226 - use Snippets.

Thank you so much for visiting me and have a fabulous Monday!  Take care. Christine xxx

This is lovely and sparkly and nice to see a poinsettia in white . I need to make a card with a poinsettia on it for challenge at the weekend but I really haven't a clue what to do at the moment. My mojo has deserted me. Said she didn't want me giving her my flu germs.
Hugs Mrs A.
