Hi!  I'm late with my post for the newest challenge over at The Flower Challenge where this month we are asking players to use gold.  Here's my card which features gold embossing and gold pearls. 

I actually made this card some weeks ago and then realised last week it would work for this challenge - so win!  I stamped, stenciled and die-cut the flower and added a die-cut cover plate to a white card base.  The sentiment was gold heat-embossed then I went around the edged with darker ink to make it stand out more,

Finally, I finished with some gold pearls.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Please check out the fabulous cards made by the design team.

I can see me using this Poinsettia again, and again before the end of the year, Karren - it's definitely a favorite of mine. You've shown me how I can use one for two cards - another win!
Gorgeous card!

I'm with Michele on this one, Karren. The poinsettia is so large you can make two cards with one using your design layout which is gorgeous with the coverplate in the background and heat embossed sentiment strip.
