I used a very old piece of confetti tissue paper that I've had forever. I used it for my bg and my poinsettia. I kept the layout simple and very similar to this card I made the other day. I thought it was clean enough to show the faux silk technique that was used. It is hard to see in the photo, but I love the texture it gave to the bg and the poinsettia. It reminds me of the texture on a real poinsettia. I stamped the tissue paper, crinkled it up, flatten it out, adhered it to the cardstock and then colored it with copics. I cut one out with the diecut that matches and the top two layers with scissors and popped it all up.
Thanks for looking
