   I have boxes of narrow ribbon so I took the opportunity to use some of it on this card. I wrapped two lengths of green and one length of red ribbon round white card. This I then matted and layered onto green mirri and then white card. I stamped the image from Chocolate Baroque twice. The first image I coloured with distress ink and matted onto red mirri card. The second image I coloured using Promarkers. I cut out the poinsettia, shaped it slightly and decoupaged onto the first. After attaching to the card I added glitter to the centre of the flower and a greeting.
