Poinsettia with Pink

Last year I moved in mid October so I was totally unprepared for Christmas and sadly had to send out Christmas cards that I bought in a store.  Christmas is the one time of the year that I always definitely send my friends and family cards that I have made.  I had this idea last year so decided to pursue it this year.  I wanted to do something a bit different than standard Christmas colors, yet very elegant.  The following card was really what I wanted to create.

 Once again I can't quite gt the color to show quite right.  This card is made with a beautiful rose color.  I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded it to bring out the white core.  The saying is mounted onto a decorative label from Spellbinders, with pearls added on the ends.  The poinsettia is also a Spellbinder die with pearls in the center.  I love how this came out.

This is entered in the following challenges:
