Color Throwdown

Check out these gorgeous colors our hostess, Jodi, has picked for the new Color Throwdown Challenge!! I knew right away I wanted to color this poinsettia image that's an oldie but goody image from the former Flourishes stamp company.  I see by way of social media that Flourishes is making a comeback soon, so that will be something to look forward to.  

I gold embossed the images, colored with Copics then did some fussy cutting.  I stamped the poinsettia twice so I could cut out a portion of the flower to pop with foam tape.  I added Diamond Stickles to the center of the poinsettia. I'm also entering this into
Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge...LOVE this simple layout!
