I used Fern to stamp the image, masked the image and sponged Cramberry for the poinsettia and Almond for the pinecone.  The stamped image was fussy cut and glued to cranberry CS., layered it with New Enland Ivy, Cranberry, Gold Glitter, and more Cranberry.  The gold stripped paper is from the Silver and Gold paper pack. Then, embelished the card with gold ribbon from the Basics Ribbon Pack, and sparkles. The Gold shimmer brush was used the paint the round ornament between the poinsettia and pinecone

Here are some additional art samples.
