A Card for Facebook

Good Morning Crafters this weeks theme over on Facebook is "Shades of Red" and I created this card mind you with a idea from Sue Wilson and it was quite tricky.
The base card is a 7.50"x 6.00" and its layered up with a white first layer which has been pierced and then the next layer is a embossed "Poinsettia" folder and laid on top
The Poinsettia striplet has been cut then layered up on a piece of white and then red card, the flowers you can see where created with a glitter glue which was layed in the petals of the diecut layer, I must admit I then cut another top layer and put it on top to cover up any smudges.
This was then placed down the left side, and I fold some pearl sprays and layed them as shown, And then diecut two poinsettias out of red card and moulded and layered up as shown, I then placed them on top of some white seam binding ribbon and thin red ribbon which were tied into a bow.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is a stunning card and we truly appreciate your sharing it with us over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity, however, as we are a rubber stamp company, I just wanted to let you know we do expect to see some element of rubber stamping in our challenge entries, even if it's just a tiny bit ;0) I hope you'll come and play with us again next month :0)
