I am back with my 3rd take with the latest Build-a Flower Poinsettia.
wish you a Merry Christmas

This card has some dimensions, but the layering is kept fairly minimum.

Ding---> use a Post-It note or Washi Tape and cover the edges. This way, you get this invisible border. It creates a define border without adding the bulk.

I love the details from the outline stamp and decided to use it to stamp the background.
wishing you

This is simple stamping....because this stamp is just that amazing.
I used Cherry Blossom Mini /Oval ink and layered them from lightest to the darkest.

I did, however, embossed the outline with Antique Gold and that seem to make the image pop even more. The Tonic Nuvo Golden Droplets are the perfect touches.

I hope that you find this post helpful and inspiring.

Can't decide if I love this stamp set with or without several layers...it's elegant and fine just as you've shown it here. I think I might prefer it this way. The background really showcases the bloom beautifully and that sentiment is perfect.

I like the outline poinsettias you added in the background. This is a beautiful card Virginia. The focal bloom is amazing!
