This is my take on the challenge:

Another set from ODBD that I fell in love with....I was going to try it in a light blue....but then how many blue poinsettias has one seen?...hmmm not too many, but hey...theres an idea for the gardeners!!


The gold embossing powder was a nice touch (I thought)....but then when I got to painting it...oh wow...where are the edges of one leaf to another....had to get my telescope out there and see if I could find them...lol...but it all worked out...my border paper showed up a little pinker...it was the same colour as the flower (almost)...but the camera does add colour sometimes...

The ribbon I got at Michaels, fell in love with the three tone it represented. so much glitter...had to get my shades on...lol
