Unscripted Sketch #189 Poinsettia Card

This simple sketch from Unscripted Sketches plus their challenge to do something to the circle inspired this card.

The paper has gold glitter beside all of the red lines which gave me the idea to add a gold edge along the white doily using a gold metallic marker from Close To My Heart. This was layered with two poinsettias and a black glittery doily from Wilton. I also combined it with the white ribbon edged with gold. The poinsettia digi from Clear Dollar Stamps is topped with a poinsettia from Close To My Heart that has a metallic rimmed pearl brad. It looked fine in person but seeing it on my computer makes me wish I'd highlighted it with black marker like the digi.

I'm sharing this card with the following:
