Purple Poinsettia

 Good afternoon all, I hope you are all keeping well, sorry I haven't been around as much as normal, Heather hasn't been to well she had a fall, and we ended up at the hospital yesterday, but they let me bring her home, so I have got her tucked up in bed today. I have been trying to fit in getting some Christmas cards made and this one is made using my favourite poinsettia stamp set from Premium Craft Brand, these stamps are available at Polkadoodles  http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/index.php I have coloured the poinsettia with my graph'It markers, cut it out and layered it up, captivating die cut squares backing paper from polkadoodles die cut tree border, and gems are from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
