The Legend of the Poinsettia

This card is an SVG cut from the SVG Cuts kit: Merry and Bright
I just had to try looked so festive and elegant.
Most of the papers are fron the DCWV Christmas Stack
that I had leftover from last year.  There are so many
wonderful  patterns and colors in this collection that
it is easy to pick your designs.
The snowflake and top layer of the flower are popped for dimension, embossing,
some glossy accents, smaller snowflakes, and a small gem finish the card front.
I chose to include the Legend of the Poinsettia as the inside sentiment.
I actually did not know anything about the reason we see this beautiful flower
during the Christmas season until I did some research.
This card is much prettier than my photo shows.
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
