I drew upon the rich colors from the photo seeing Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, and Gold for my design. I used this beautiful poinsettia image, coloring it first with Ranger's Fired Brick and then sponging Stampin' Up's rich Cherry Cobbler in the center for depth. I stamped it twice, cut it out, and separated with dimensionals. The center of the poinsettia is a Candi gold embellishment that looks like a brad but isn't (they are cool!) I used brushed gold cardstock for my leaves and then crimped them. I also used the Pine Sprig in the background stamping it first with Soft Suede and then heat embossing it with metallic gold.
I also used a Sizzix Flourish embossing folder on the Soft Suede panel. I topped it off by adding touches of gold with my gold leafing pen and then spritzing champagne shimmer mist over the entire piece of cardstock. I felt my gold organdy ribbon needed a little something extra, so I added what was originally gold cord that I colored with a Cardinal Red Copic marker.
