A Wintry Thank You

Hello and Happy New Year! After a wonderful holiday, I am so excited to get back into my stamping room and create. One of my first pieces for this year is a vellum poinsettia card. I have been seeing these all over Pinterest like here and wanted to try one. Soooo, for this week's challenge at Clear it Out, I tried one, and I hope you like it as much as I do! Here are the details for the challenge and for my card:
Clear it Out Challenge - Make a Thank You card using your stash of BUTTONS!

To make the card, I simply printed this poinsettia image from Stitchy Bear (Currently FREE!) out twice on VELLUM.  Then, I cut several of the inner layers of the flower out from both and popped them up on dimensionals. Under one layer, I used some green glitter paper to help it match the border around the crumb cake cardstock. Finally, I stamped my "thank you", added the rhinestones and finished it off with a lovely Stampin Up diamond button. These truly are a stash item for me - I hoard them because they are so pretty!

So that's it for me. I hope you are staying warm and having a wonderful day wherever you are!
