Poppystamps Challenge #3 - Sparkle & Shine

This is my first time to attend Poppystamps Challenge. The current challenge is Sparkle & Shine, below is the challenge photo:

I decided to use the Blooming Poinsettia die set to make a Christmas card. First, I cut out each piece on vellum (see below) and applied pink Inka-Gold on the poinsettia petals and green Inka-Gold on the leaves.   

Here are the colored poinsettia petals and leaves. With Inka-Gold applied on vellum, it gives these die cuts a very shimmery and metallic look.

I assembled the petals and leaves and attached on a stitched white circle die cut. Then I mounted the circle on the pink metallic card. Finish the card by attached the die cut greeting words and little pink gems on them.  

Cardstock: PTI
Dies: Poppystamps, MTF (circle die), Simon Says Stamps (greeting)
Others: vellum, Inka-Gold, pink gems
