Red Poinsettia

I decided to create a more traditional Christmas card with the focal point being a poinsettia.  I'm pleased with the effect.


I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

I have used a paper from a Christmas paper pad by MME.  The image is Poinsettia from Bugaboo Stamps which I coloured with copic markers R59, R46, G17, G14, Y15.  I also used an offcut of MME paper from another card, some red mesh ribbon, some red glitter tape from American Crafts and some red bling from Sullivans.  The die-cut used for the image is from Spellbinders.
