Merry Monday #74

This week at Merry Monday, Lesley has given us another gorgeous inspiration photo to go on:

Here is my card:

I went with a much darker green than in the inspiration pic, but I still like it.  I used my Spellbinders Poinsettia die, but I wanted a fuller look this time, so I cut a few more layers.  Kept it all white, except for a bit of sponging on the leaves, and the gold Stickles in the middle.  Used my Fiskars texture plate (for the first time!) for the woodgrain part of the challenge, and inked it first to enhance the embossing.  A bit of raffia ribbon ties it up nicely!  White embossed sentiment...I really must remember not to use this sentiment when using embossing powder...it is so hard to read!

Well, I wanna get this linked up, so have a good night everybody!

ETA:  I would also like to add this to the current Holly Jolly challenge:  Au Natural, and to Crafty Hazelnut Anything Goes Christmas challenge for September.
