Cooking with Cricut challenge # 65: Poinsettas and Holiday Florals

Welcome to another challenge week at Cooking with Cricut! This week the challenge is to include poinsettas or holiday florals in your project. I decided to continue with the vintage Christmas theme that I have been loving so much this year with this project using Bo Bunny's Father Christmas line. Here is my project (forgive the picture quality, for some reason I just couldn't get a good photo of this layout!):
The paper used for the gold and red poinsettas is from KaiserCraft. I just loved that gold foil paper, and thought it would make a pretty holiday flower. I used the same technique on the flowers as I did in the Vintage Christmas Card- you can see more info about that technique HERE. Here is a close up of the flowers:

 The title is a sticker from Bo Bunny, and I used Elegant Edges for the background shape. Then I added some beautiful Vintage Christmas crinkle ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique. Hope you enjoy the project and thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to see all the beautiful holiday florals on your projects!

I am also entering this project in the following challenges:
