Cuddly Buddly - Poinsettia

Hello!  Happy Thursday to you!  I'm here to share with you my 1st card as a DT for Cuddly Buddly.  I'm totally excited to be part of the DT and represent this fabulous company!  I had applied to the DT of digis because I figured the distance would make it easier for them.  But they read this and offered me the clear stamp position!!!!  I was over the moon and couldn't wait to get my stamps to play with.

Wow they are just all so fabulous and it was hard to decide which stamp set that I should use the fastest!  I finally decided to share with you the card that I made using the Poinsettia collage set:
I just think it's soooo elegant!  And I really wanted to bring the attention to that wonderful stamp.  Right away I knew that I had to do some heat embossing!  So I stamped the image a few times and heat embossed it with some gold embossing powder.

Don't know about you but I really love when my stamped image is crisp and clear and wow those stamps are fabulous for this!!!

The paper that I used in the background is from WR memory keepers - North Pole.  I used a MS border punch. I also used my fleurs de lis square and large square from Spellbinder.  I added some ribbon and a charm (talking of charms there are lots in the store here).  Finally I added some buttons from my stash but there's some fabulous buttons here.

Here's a closer look at the stamp image that I colored 3 times with copics
Here's a closer look at the added charm.  I just love adding this sort of finishing touch.
And here's a sideview of the card so you really see the added dimension to the poinsettia.
