Poinsettia - Black Tie Friday #8

I have decided that I should try to do as many Christmas cards as possible when doing card challenges. So, this week it was pick a one item from each row.  I may have got a bit confused and picked one item from each column.  Tomato, tomAto right?  Here were the options.

I chose: rectangle base, flowers, and green.  I used a poinsettia stamp from the Holly Berry House.  I stamped and embossed several images and then cut them out by layers to create a 3-D effect.  I used some ribbon for leaves.  Not quite sure if I love it, but it works.  

Stamp: Poinsettia (Holly Berry House - Colorado Springs), More Merry Messages (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock: Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green
Ribbon: Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon
Gold Embossing Powder (Holly Berry House - Colorado Springs)
