Vintage Poinsettia

Hello Again, I'm Back 
Todays creation is for the new challenge over at Cardz For Galz, and this week we would like to see your 'Vintage Christmas' girly cards.
I have used a very old poinsettia stamp on my card. I have silver heat embossed it onto vellum, then coloured it on the reverse. I have repeated this several times, before layering up the petals to make a more realistic looking flower, that has been finished in the centre with some bling. It has then simply been matted onto an ornate die cut to give a CAS yet vintage feel to the card.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafting By Design - anything goes
Little Red Wagon - traditional Christmas colours
Mod Squad - recipe
I Heart Sketches - sketch and/or heat embossing
Christmas Card - anything goes
Pile It On - red and green
Addicted To CAS - dimension
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - use die cuts or punches
I hope you like my little creation, and that it will inspire you to join in the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back soon with some more cards.
Hugs Sharon xx
