Starlights Poinsettia Card

Good morning, Kirsten here. I hope everyone had a great weekend. How are the Christmas preparations coming along? I'm betting you're all doing a lot better than I am. :) My card today is my final Starlights project for November. I used:
 Sue Wilson Holly Sprays cutting dies
 Leane Creatief Multi Flower Die 004& pine leaves cutting dies
Peacock Pleasure embossing folder from Couture Creations

I mixed Blue & Silver Starlights, painted it onto white Super Smooth, then die cut the poinsettia layers. The foliage was cut from pieces of white card painted with Silver & Green, except for the holly leaves, which I cut from white card, then painted the berries blue...............

I painted two squares of Super Smooth with Blue Starlights, dry embossed one with the Couture Creations embossing folder, then painted the raised areas with Silver Starlights.

I used Black Starlite Brilliance ink to stamp the Hobby Art Wildflowers images directly onto a 7x7 card blank, then matted & layered the layers of blue, white & black card..........
