Black Noel and red poinsettia - A Christmas card

New month, new challenge on the DCWV blog. And for the last, it will not be the usual sketch but a moodboard ! I love moodboard !
The only thing I didn't use was the green colors. I have the patterned and textured papers (Christmas Plaid, black glitter paper), the theme (obviously Christmas), the gold (border and pearls)...

Do you think the red poinsettia in the center is a part of the design of the paper ? You are so wrong ! (no offense)
The paper is a journaling card I cut out from the stack, and the center was completely white ! What I did was cover the border (gold border in the center included) with paper hold by washi tape, place a poinsettia metal stencil (Dreamweavers) and applied clear embossing ink over it. I used then red tinsel embossing powder (Ranger) and heated it.

The final touches are the black glimmer die "Noel" (Sizzix/Holtz) and the black poinsettia, cut out from a stamp placed on the back (La Compagnie des Elfes) with 3 golden half pearls for center.

I will post later the Advent calendar I made with the same collection of papers. So see later, today or tomorrow for my next Christmas card !
