Holly, Pine, and Poinsettia

EDITED:- I don't know what is going on, or how to fix the problem.....
I put this post in my drafts folder, on 14/11/14, at 1.24pm, but actually
finished it off and published it today, 26/11/14 at 4.11pm. However, it
is publishing with the draft date and time??? I regularly put posts in my
drafts folder, but this has never happened before? I hope this won't
affect the challenges I wish to enter...I am not 'backdating'.

I'm baaaaack...yes (I did warn you), with another poinsettia card!
This one is similar to one I created earlier this year.

With this card, I rounded the corners, added my French glass bead sprays,
and used a Sparklet for the poinsettia centre.

A closer look at the poinsettia, foliage, and bead sprays.

Inside my card has a very large area on which to write
my personal Christmas greetings.

One of the challenges I wish to enter is Beccy Muir's at Beccy's Place. She has
a really fun challenge that lasts right through November. There is a different
challenge theme each day, and she gives out her wonderful digital images as
prizes. Today she asks us to create something that is influenced by the style of
someone whose work we admire. Beccy has created a lovely card that echoes
those of Kittie Caracciolo, whose work I myself have admired for several 
years, along with that of Selma Stevenson.
