Snowflake/Poinsettia Christmas Card

I love this card. It just fell together quickly. I had the base already embossing with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder. I had planned to use it on another card but it didn't work so into my unused box it went. The last time I was at a class at the LSS the owner had made some cards using this poinsettia die. I asked her if I could cut some out and she said sure. I didn't like the leaf die that came with it so I used my MS branch and MS Rose Leaf punches for foliage. The MS snowflake punch to kind of fill in the blank upper part. This was so simple and fast I want to make more, but wouldn't you know it, my Swiss Dots embossing folder is MIA. I can't figure out what I did with it. I have one I cut apart maybe I can use that. Or buy another one. We'll see.
I made several different cards this weekend and will be posting the as I have time this week. I am really stuck on traditional colors and I will try to break out of the BOX this following weekend.
