TECC43 Single Poinsettia

After a day of errands, I had time to stamp! I used Taylor's Cupcake Challenge sketch and came up with this card. I used Verve's newly released Christmas Poinsettia - man it is so beautiful. I colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol (I don't have any Copics that match Cranberry Crisp!). For the center, I used a combination of pink and Christmas red stickles. BUT, my son put his arm on the image when the stickles were wet, hence the dew drop in the center!! I cut out the poinsettia and put it on dimensionals.
The DP is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and the dew drops are from the Island Blossom bottle. I dragged the edges of the white panels in Cranberry Crisp and Artichoke ink to lessen the brightness. I really wanted to do something else to this, I don't know, maybe some piercing, but after fussing around with it for about an hour I settled on the tafetta ribbon.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Christmas Poinsettia
Paper - cranberry crisp, chocolate chip, white, Figgy Pudding
Accessories - dew drops, stickles, chocolate tafetta ribbon, circle nesties
