Cardabilities Sketch 13 DT Reveal

Hi friends,
It's the fifteenth, which means it's time for another fab Cardabilities sketch!
Here's sketch #13 for ya!
Here's my card:
As soon as I saw this sketch, I KNEW what I wanted to do- a Christmas card! I haven't started my Halloween cards yet :( ---> but I've got lots of ideas brewin'! Anyhoo, I thought at least I should get started on Christmas.

The deets:
I love poinsettias & the sight of them just screams "Christmas is here!" :) I'm usually a traditionally red poinsettia girl, but there's something elegant about the ivory ones. I used the Regal Poinsettia stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. I stamped all 5 stamp sizes on PTI Rustic White cs (I can't get enough of that color!) It's heat embossed with gold powder- then I cut them out. I added dimensionals to the back of each flower & layered them. I added little pearls to the center of the smallest one. The sentiment is a vellum quote from (my hero) Anna Griffin as is all the patterned paper. The pearls are ZVA & to finish I added a sheer ribbon. I think you are looking at the design for my 2010 Christmas cards. Well... at least one of them ;) I usually end up with 3-4 different designs cuz I don't know how to keep it simple! Hee! Hee!

Here's a closer peek at the layers:
