Blue Poinsettia card

Here is a card that I submitted to Flourishes design challenge in corresponding to their new release happening tonight. They have 3 new stamps being released. The challenge was called "Warm Winter Wishes and the card had to have some  blue. I used a metallic blue cardstock for base, 2nd layer added burnish gold from Stampin'Up. Cut a 3" X 3 3/4" Blue Awning Blue Damask paper by K& Company and another 3" X 3 3/4" Blue Awning Blue Floral embossed paper from K & Company. I layered both pieces over the gold paper. Wrap a piece of ribbon from Michael's to cover the joint between 2 papers and tied a faux bow. Using the Poinsetia stamp from the Flourishes set (Poinsettia & Boxwood) I stamped the poinsettia plus the single petals  in Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers B21,B24, B28. I then popped some of the single petals using pop up dots to add dimention.I added blue glass glitter from Melissa Frances to the petals of the poinsettia. I also add Clearsnap design adhesive "Brocade" by burnishing it onto the cardstock and used "Canadian Blue" and a lighter "Western Blue" glitter from In the Making Enterprises.  Stamp saying in Black Versafine and punch it out with a scallop oval from Stampin'Up and used another label punch from EK success to punch out a piece of blue/gold paper. Add blue glass glitter around scallop. Add 3 pearls to right hand corner.
