Cricut Circle Blog Challenge

This week the challenge in the Circle blog was to create something using some of your flowers from your stash and incorporate at least 2 Cricut cuts into it.  The prize is a $25 credit to your account.
Here is my card, it was also made following a sketch this week on the message board.
I have had this poinsettia flower and leaves in one of my Prima flower packs for some time now.   The background plaid paper was print and cut using the Imagine cartridge Santa's Village.  The white is pearl paper I Cuttlebugged with a plaid flower that was in a Christmas set of folders.
The flower pot was cut from Walk in my Garden , I Cuttlebugged it and then put Crackle Accents on it.    Here is a close up of the pot.
The stem of the flower is the letter "L" from the Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge.
So I guess that covered my two cuts and 3 if you count the plaid paper.

I did the inside very simply and will stamp a sentiment is it later.
I also added some of that plaid paper from the Santa's Village cartridge.  All the plaid papers I printed on pearl paper so they have a very pretty sheen to them.
Thanks for stopping by, would love to hear what you think of my poinsettia card.
