Pink poinsettias

 Hello crafty peeps! This is my second post today. A Two-For!

I have another card to share with you:

and the inside:

The poinsettia/leaves stamps are NBUS items. I think I bought them
about a year ago, and this was the first time they saw ink.
I'm getting better at lining up these layered stamps. Only took me
three tries this time before getting a decent stamped flower! Yay me!

It's really hard to tell, but that (ancient) green paper has a very subtle metallic sheen to it,
and the holly leaves are all glittered up. I did add some gold Stickles to the
center of the flower for a bit more sparkle.
I'm entering this card at:


That's it for now. Thanks for visiting. I hope that you have
a wonderful day!
