Sugared Poinsettia and Pine

Good morning.  I have a sparkly sugared poinsettia to share with you today.  I love the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia and think the Impression Obsession Pine Branch is the perfect accompaniment.

I would love to tell you that I was smart enough to add the glossy accents and glitter to all the layers of the flower before I assembled it but no such luck.  I had the whole pink portion of the flower together and thought it looked plain.  I decided to add glitter and did it by slathering on glossy accents one petal at a time, spreading it around with my finger and then spooned on glitter.  I hadn’t attached the green leaves to the flower yet so I was able to do them while they were still loose.

I love adding some kind of dimensional frame around big flowers like this.  I think it add interest.  I cut the frame using a grand square Nestabilities and then mounted to the card front with mounting tape. I attached the flower and pine to the base using glossy accents.  The petals of the flower were a little heavy with the glitter so I added double layered squares of mounting tape under several of them to hold them up.
