It's now week two of the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge 218 - BLESSINGS word recipe (use 4 or more letters from the word BLESSINGS).

Here is my card:
Our Daily Bread Designs, Elizabeth Whisson, ODBD Peaceful Poinsettias Dies, ODBD Fancy Foliage Dies, Christmas card, handmade, Christmas Door

B-Blue (card base)
E-Embossing (on sentiment)
S-Stencil (used ODBD Peaceful Poinsettia dies to stencil colour)
S-Silver (embossing powder and leaves)
I-Ink (on Poinsettias)
N-Nine pearls
G-Glossy Accents (on Poinsettias)
S-Shimmer (I've added some perfect pearls to the tips of the Poinsettias)

Here is another photo:

I've stamped one of the sentiments from Our Daily Bread Designs' Christmas Door set onto DP using clear ink and embossed with silver EP. The Poinsettias are these gorgeous dies from ODBD Peaceful Poinsettias Dies (and you can use them to stencil the middle of the petals).The leaves are from ODBD Fancy Foliage Dies. I've added some glossy accents to the poinsettias and some perfect pearls to the tips of the petals and on some of the leaves. (I used a damp paint brush and dipped it into some of the perfect pearls powder, then brushed onto the petals and leaves.)
