Timeless Tuesday Poinsettia

I really need to add to my Christmas card stash, so the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge was perfect!  Amanda Havon has challenged us to a Pinterest Christmas...find a Christmas photo on Pinterest to be our inspiration.  After typing in the search word "poinsettia", I found this lovely card by Kittie Caracciolo using her famous sculpted flowers technique.  Instead of using the dies, I colored this image by Flourishes, cut it out and popped it with foam dots.  Note to self: figure out the leaf placement BEFORE you color!  The shading is upside down on some of the leaves. :-(

STAMPS: Poinsettia and Boxwood by Flourishes
PAPER: Blushing Bride, White, X-Press It Blending Card
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Fleur  de Lis Square Nestie, Square Nesties
COPICS: R00, R01, R11, R12, R14, Y13, Y17, YG11, YG13, YG17.
