Poinsettia Girl

Good Morning,

It's an extremely wet morning here in the North of Scotland so that means a day indoors doing housework and maybe a spot of baking.  I have a huge pile of ironing so just as well it's not good enough weather for an outing!

Today's card is made using another of my Sugar Nellie purchases from the weekend, this time the stamp is 'Poinsettia Girl'.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers then given it a spritz of Spray & Sparkle for a bit of subtle glitter.  The papers I've used are freebies from Quick Cards Made Easy a while back, they haven't photographed very well, in real life they match the image better.  The sentiment is from a Paula Pascual set and the large flower die is from a set by Sizzix from Stampin' Up.  The Poinsettia die is by Spellbinders.  Gems, pearls and two kinds of ribbon finish the card off.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
