This Red Glittered Poinsettia

As Pam said, celebrating Christmas or not, one just have to see all that green & red around, so ~we~ have to put it on our cards. Well, Pam, I've certainly put red & green on my card (and added some gold, naturally... LOL) I think I've never ever did so much gold in my cards...
and it goes, as always, for so many challenges (writing them all took me much more than making the card itself ...):
tis the season - day 275 365 cards.
sketch - #24 sketch & stash (my newest stash are the red tiny pearls).
paper piecing - lilli boo too
recipe: use a brad (the center of the flower, on the ribbon), 3's of something (the red pearls) & red (is there any red on my card?.... ) - #6 cooking it up with Kattie
digi image - #19 rumble in the cottage studio (the poinsettia)
glitter - stamp something; pick 3 (mine is color an image in glitter - the petals are colored with metallic sakura gel pen), outline an image in glitter (again - the petal edge are outlined with glitter glue), use glou pen and cover in glitter (the veins over the green leaves )) - stamping vacation; Christmas sparkle - digital tuesday; #59 cuttlebug;
fancy cs (the golden cs under the flower) - paper maniac;
; a Cristmas image - # 20 paper cutz (the pionesttia) ;
christmas flowers - saturday spotlight
