Christmas Poinsettia

It's been several weeks since I made a Christmas card and was
motivated to do so today seeing all the challenges out there calling for them.

It's also been a while since I pulled out one of my favorite dies,
the Spellbinders layered poinsettia. 
This one was done with DCWV metallic card stocks.
The ribbon has been in my statsh for quite some time.
I used a silver dazzles sticker sentiment, silver dazzles borders and added a few gems.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.

There is inspiration from Jingle Belles
which is to use their blog header.

and since I used die cuts I was inspired by
where the challenge is Christmas in July.
I'm also linking up to
