I'm not sure that it can be seen in the photo, but I started my card by stamping two Holly Strips with Golden Glitz Pigment Ink down the center of the lavender panel. This represents the strips of a gold design in this picture..
I used the Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettias Stamp and Die to create three poinsettias from SU Pink Pirouette paper. I stamped the images with VersaMark ink and covered them with a lavender embossing powder and heat set them. These poinsettias represent the flowers sitting on top of the Lavender and Rosemary AirEssence spray bottle. That is why the poinsettias are at the top of the card.
The lavender panel represents the Lavender and Rosemary AirEssence fragrance. The remaining elements were added to enhance the card.
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!

This is gorgeous!! Love the pink and purple for non-traditional colors for Christmas. The poinsettias are beautiful. The gold accents give your card such elegance and pizzazz. Amazing card. Great job with your inspiration! TFS

Bev, this is outstanding. Yes, we were using just about the same inspiration today. I love your beautiful poinsettias and everytime I see prills I threaten to buy them and have never done it. Love all the gold in your greenery and holly. What a beautiful heart with a special message.

What a gorgeous Christmas card this is done in such rich colors that showcase these stunning blush-colored poinsettia's so beautifully. I gasped when I opened up the larger image of this card, and whomever receives this will gasp too! I would not have thought to do all the greenery elements in the gold, and that is just stunning so thank you for the great inspiration on this. ~Karen.
