Layered Vellum Die Cuts

Haven't had a chance to play along in a PTI MIM challenge for awhile, but when I saw it was to layer vellum die cuts, I knew I wanted to join in.  Melissa's video was inspiring & I included her ideas of dry embossing the vellum & combining felt with sparkle.  My collection of PTI dies is limited, but I thought Lovely Layers would work great for this technique & don't you think it looks like a poinsettia here?  For the embossing folder I used Cuttlebug's Mesh & the sparkle is Stampendous! Shaved Ice attached with spray adhesive.  The Mega Mat Stack 3 cut the MFT Puff Cloud White felt easily.  I used silver alphabet stickers for "JOY" & added the embellishments to get this really fun card.  Actually, this is the second card I made from the video.  The first one I liked so much I decided to use it for one of the big mail in contests or send it for possible publication.  Since I used Stampendous! Shaved Ice for my flower's sparkle, I'm also entering this card into the Stampendous! November challenge.
I hope you've all had a great weekend & a lovely Thanksgiving if you're in the US.  I have so much to be thankful for & on that list are my on-line card-making friends, like you!
