Flashy Poinsettia
Topic: Collage

In a complete reversal from yesterday's understated offering, today's card is all about the glitz!

I had these foil leaves from my days as a cake decorator and thought they would make a great poinsettia (I was right). For contrast I placed copper skeleton leaves under the flower. Then I mounted the whole thing with foam tape over silver cardstock that had been run through a Cuttlebug folder and placed a metallic copper cardstock as the base.

Still not flashy enough! So I put Stickles in all the holes of the background paper. Not done! I applied a line of gold Stickles down the vein of each gold leaf. Not quite there. Red rhinestones in all the solid dots of the background. A final touch... Thick acrylic cardinal sticker for the flower center.

Badda-bing!
