Layered Poinsettia / Peace On Earth!

Happy Friday, everyone! First of all, since it's Veterans Day, I wanted to send many thanks, hugs, and prayers to all of those in the armed forces....and to the families at home. Thanks to all those who have put their lives in danger and for those who have paid the ultimate price....there are not enough words to express the gratitude. God's blessings to all of you!!

Today I would like to share a simple and fun I made for a couple of challenges at Splitcoast this week. The Clean and Simple Challenge was based on a sketch by my former DT sister at CPC, Taylor Usry....yay, Taylor! Thanks for the great sample! Also, the Ways To Use It Challenge was to create "Space" by using dimensional flowers, pop-up 3d items, etc.....a perfect chance to use my new Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die set! I was so intimidated to make one of these, but I don't know why, because it was easy peasy!! Cut out each section, sponge, then pop up!!

Above is a close up of the poinsettia plus the yummy "Pearl" Glimmer Mist, which is usually camera shy!

This card is so very pretty. Love that color of green and the piercing and your poinsettia is beautiful and sparkly. TFS.
