Poinsettia Winter Wishes

Hello bloggers today we have a winter wishes card, this could also be used for a winter birthday or Christmas.

This card began as a white hammered 6x6 card blank. First I cut a mat slightly smaller than the card blank from some cream patterned paper.  This was then adhered to the card.  Next I die cut my focal flower using some red waxed paper and Spellbinders 'poinsettia' die set.  Whilst still in the die I inked through with black soot distress ink to highlight the details on the petals.  This was then layered up and a faux pearl was added to the centre, that was coloured with a ProMarker.  Using Spellbinders 'foliage' die set I cut the leaves from some green pearlescent paper.  Whilst still in the die I inked through with pine needles distress ink. I recycled some pages of an old unwanted book and used some red waxed paper to make my swirls.  These were die cut with Spellbinders 'venetian motifs' die set.   The sentiment was stamped onto white card stock using Crafter's Companion 'the snowman' stamp set.  It was then die cut using Spellbinders 'labels 14' die set.  I inked the edges with antique linen distress ink.  Finally all the pieces were adhered to the card blank.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
