Poinsettia Card

Hi, I made this card a couple of weeks ago and have just now had a chance to post it.
I had seen on a blog (sorry can't remember) that they used a flower cut from the Flower Shoppe cartridge to make a poinsettia, well I made it and had it sitting on my desk for about a month.  When a challenge was posted on the Cricut message board with a sketch that I could finally use this flower on I made this card.
I love the way it came out and I found the perfect background paper in my stash, even has the sentiment going perfectly up the side "Happy Holidays".
Here is a closer look at the flower, it is shimmery. I printed the paper using my Imagine on Cryogen White paper that has a mica like sparkle on it that shows through the printing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit my blog.  I would love to hear what you think of my flower.
