French Foliage Poinsetta - Create with Connie & Mary #221

I'm having trouble sleeping tonight so I thought I'd get up and make some cards.
This card is for the sketch challenge with Create with Connie & Mary #211 here

2012 Create Challenges-027 
The poinsettia was made by stamping the leaf image of the French Foliage stamp set with Raspberry Ripple ink onto Cherry Cobbler card stock and embossing them with Vanilla embossing powder.  This was done 12 times. Embossing with the scented embossing powder is a very aromatic experience!!  The larger leaves (3 of them) were stamped with Garden Green ink onto Gumball Green card stock and also embossed with Vanilla embossing powder. Each leaf was then cut out and glued to a 1 1/4" circle. The larger leaves were attached to the underside of the poinsettia. The center of the flower is a Boho blossom punched in Summer Starfruit sponged with Raspberry Ripple.  A gold glimmer brad completes the flower.
The poinsettia was mounted onto a 2 1/2" champagne glimmer circle, which was attached to a large paper doily painted with Champagne glimmer paint. The outer edge of the doily was removed to size it better for the card.
