Please, don't tell Matthew I used his watercolors!

Sometimes ya jus' gotta do what 'cha gotta do.  

 After stamping and clear embossing this poinsettia from Sparkle n Sprinkle, I pulled out Matty's Crayola set and watercolored it.  Then using a waterbrush and the ink inside the lid of my CTMH ruby ink pad, I added a bit more color near the center.  In the very center are teeny tiny glass beads.  And the whole image got a good coat of sparkle spray mist, before it was fussy cut and adhered to the embossed dp.  I was hoping you could see the sparkle in this closeup photo.
The white sentiment and red background cuts are from the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.  
The sentiment is, also, CTMH.
Additional Challenges:
A Snowflakes Promise Challenge - Winter or Christmas
