Poinsettia Layers!

My first attempt at using the Papermania poinsettia template and I was quite impressed with how they turned out:

I've used some kraft coloured card (with a goldish sheen on it), and along the top I've put some of the Papermania Signature "A Christmas Carol" vellum. I've used kraft coloured paper & red & gold Christmas text paper for the poinsettias. The sentiment is "recycled" from an old Christmas card. Glitter and gems to embellish!

Challenges I'm entering:
Donna's Den of Crafts #6 - Lots of layers
Wild Orchid Challenge #4 - Make it Sparkle
Crafty Ann's Challenge #21 - Christmas in August
Creative Inspirations #41 - Christmas in August
