Holiday Wishes

I made a card for a 'Holiday' exchange, and not knowing the beliefs of my swap partner, wanted to be respectful, so made a generic card- using my pretty shimmery cardstock again : )

 This pretty ornament is from Michael Strong Stamps. It is embossed using Gold Fire Opal EP.  I added a die (that just arrived in the mail) from Die-Versions. I die cut it in Gold, then the leaves in green and the poinsettia in Cherry Cobbler. I added Gold stickles to the poinsettia center. And, rhinestones to the open circle areas in the die. I colored silver rhinestones with R39 Copic marker to get just the right color : )  I also added some YR24 to rhinestones for the Cherry Cobbler (red) layer with the ornament.

The background is my pretty shimmery cardstock that is from a resale shop, and it is embossed using the SU poinsettia EF.
