Gifts of Christmas - Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

This card is my interpretation of the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.
Main Card:
Paper: Real Red, Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper
Accessory: 1/4" Real Red Grograin ribbon

Image Panel:
Stamp: Gift of Christmas
Ink: Image coloured with SU markers (Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Gray).  Sentiment stamped and sponged with Old Olive.  The entire image was covered with Versa Mark and Iridescent Ice embossing powder applied and heated to get that lovely frosty look.
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive matting
Accessory:  Dimensionals

Poinsettia
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive
Ink: Real Red petals sponged with Cherry Cobbler; the leaves sponged with Old Olive
Accessories: Small oval punch, paper crimper, pearls, smooch, dimensionals

Punch out 9 small ovals.  Trim one of the ends to a point.  Curl ends with a bond folder and make vein marks with a small stylus.  Sponge ends with Cherry Cobbler.
Punch 1 1/4" circle. This will be the flower base.
Fold 1 12/" piece of Old Olive in half and put it sideways through the crimper.  Cut 3 leaves on the folded edge.  Sponge edges of leaves with Old Olive.
Attach the flower petals to the round circle base.  Attach the leaves.
Put pearls in the center of the poinsettia.
Spray with vanilla smooch.  Attach to card with dimensionals
