Pot of Pretty Poinsettias Pocket Card

Hello All!
I am killing 2 birds with one stone today.
I am the November Guest DT over @ The Paper Temptress and wanted to use their gorgeous Laser Gold Glossy Lustre paper. I also am a past DT of "Fred She Said" and was given these beautiful poinsettias from their RED Christmas Poinsettia Pack, but have not had a chance to use them. While strolling through Splitcoast Stampers last night, I came across some pretty flowerpot cards that had been made for a technique challenge. The light bulb lit up! The challenge was posted back in April but I did my own thing to fit today's season...and to be able to use the poinsettias.
There is a great tutorial on Stephanie Luman's blog on how to create these little cuties.
It is a fast and simple shaped card but I think they really stand out from the crowd of squares and rectangles!

The flowers pull out to reveal the sentiment and a spot to write your own little note. You could also slide a gift card into the pocket!

I added some heat embossing in gold for the sentiment and the dots in the flower centers. Remember, You can click on the pictures for a closer look!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Christmas Crackers
Check! ;)
Whimsy Stamps - Christmas
Tis the season!
Got it!
Creative Card Crew - Favorite Things
Christmas Poinsettias are one of my favorite flowers and TPT Lustre line of papers is my new fave!
Can't get much more sparkle then that gold paper and embossing!
ABC Challenge - H is for Hidden
This card has a hidden pocket
Cupcake Challenge - Gift Card Holder
The pocket would hold a gift card quite nicely!
All Sorts - Christmas Carol or Song Title
"Percy, the Puny Poinsettia"... Google it! LOL! :)
Incy Wincy - Scetch (if you want) but anything goes!
:) I love this kind of challenge!  :)

As always, I appreciate you stopping by!
