Christmas Card with Die Cuts

OOPS--looks like Maureen & I got our wires crossed, so I'm not the GD this month.  Instead I'll add my card to the challenge.
Most of you know how much I love making Christmas cards, so of course I said yes to guest designing for the February Rudolph Days challenge. Maureen runs it the 25th to the end of the month & the random winner can choose a die or a stamp.  My card uses the beautiful Elizabeth Craft poinsettia that was a gift from Maureen for being a DT member last year.
I colored the die cuts with Zigs & blended with WOS instead of water. The shimmer is really gorgeous & I plan to use that technique again.  
I've had the tiny gold beads for many years & need to remember to use them.  Attaching them with Diamond Glaze worked like a charm! Love this Penny Black Joy die cut which was brushed with WOS & then covered in Diamond Glaze for a nice shine.  Lots of inspiration from the DT & in the gallery--hope you join in.  I'm also entering HLS Christmas challenge, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add: Also entering SSS Work It Wednesday as I have green leaves.
