Poinsettia on Velvet

I've been doing this make 10 holiday cards per month challenge at Splitcoast this year, and this is my 10th holiday card for March. ( I have 7 Easter cards that are not on the blog yet as one of them is for an Challenge display at the stamp shack haha on me) so, more will come later. This one went together really fast as I had been digging in the green and red scraps the other day for the Jingle Balls card and seen this green velvet paper. ( no idea who makes it i bought it from an online stamp store in Utah like 5 or 6 years ago) and i hoard every little piece of it haha. The PSX Poinsettia is stamped on Georgia Pacific 110 with Black ink and colored with Prisma Pencils. I cut this out and ran it through an 510 Xyron glue machine and learned something new... that little blue glue glob eraser for printed paper does NOT work on velvet paper, so don't look too close at the edges of the petals. You cant see it in the photograph but, i also went over the veins in the leaves with an sakura gelly roll stardust pen. so it has a little bling in real life. The Sentiments from the All Holidays set (SU) and stamped on True Thyme cardstock then punched with an Mega Rectangle punchie. The gingham dot -garnet pp is from Daisy D's and i smeared some colorbox creamy brown chalk ink on the edges. The Ribbons from May Arts and the card is 5 1/2" square in real life.
