Gold Poinsettia

Hello my friends and Happy Saturday! Hope you all are having a great day. Today, it is cleaning house day, yeah, not too much fun, but needed. I hope I have some extra time to stamp today.
Anyways, I want to show a card I made for some challenges: The color combo comes from Stamp TV Color Challenge: Green, Red & Gold and also from Cuttlebug Challenges : Using glitter!! , FTTCC44: CAS cards and finally Just Bugging Challenge Layers.

Card Details: To get this card shape I used "A Child's Year" Cartridge and my Cricut machine. The card size is 5" x 3.75" , then I cut another card, this time smaller 3.5" x 2. 75", cut it in half, traced the scallop lines in the plain side and cut it with scissors. Then I used my Cuttlebug machine and Swiss Dots embossing folder, sponged the borders with Real Red Ink.
The image is from A year of flowers by Gina K. Designs. I stamped the image in Gold Ink and added Gold ep and then it was heat embossed. Then I added a lot of Diamond Stickles for the nice and shiny look.
Finally I added some Christmas Plaid ribbon and a red button from Buttons Holiday Collection by Gina K.
For the inside I stamped a sentiment from A Very Merry Christmas by Gina K. Designs.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: White.
Stamps: A year of flowers & A Very Merry Christmas (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Gold, Real Red, True Thyme.
Embellishments: Red Button (Holiday Collection), Christmas Plaid Ribbon, Diamond Stickles.
Accessories: Cricut Machine, A Child's Year cartridge, Cuttlebug machine, Swiss Dots Embossing folder, daubers, Dimensionals, Mini glue dots.

I hope you like it.
Your comments are appreciated.
Have a great day!
