Poinsettias for Christmas

I've been playing with the poinsettia die that was a freebie on one of the craft magazines last Christmas. I don't think I used it at all last year as by the time I got it, I'd made and posted all my Christmas card. It makes quite a big flower (yes, yes, I know that only the yellow centre is a flower and that the red 'petals' are actually bracts, but this one is made out of card so it can be whatever it wants to be. Got it?) so I kept the rest of the card very simple with a white background and the Memory Box "Happy Christmas" die cut in kraft.

I am sharing this with

Fab 'n' Funky - Get Krafty
Jingle Belles - Mele Kalikimaka (flowers)
Winter Wonderland - Ribbon or lace and/or Christmas Flowers
