Sparkly Poinsettias made with New Festive Collection Craft Dies

Hello Peeps and Happy Saturday!  I have made a Festive, super Sparkly, blinged up card using the new Creative Expressions - Festive Collection Craft Dies, by Sue Wilson. Ive used this Bling over Metallic Red Cardstock for my background and layered up these beautiful Poinsettias. I've kept it simple in design but wow does it shines IRL. :)
