Midnight Madness Sketch #76

For my Midnight Madness Design card for this week, I used our sponsors (DRS) poinsettia stamp as the centerpiece.  For my birthday this week one of the gifts that I received was a new set of prisma pencils, so I decided to try them out on this beautiful Christmas flower stamp.  Crystal lacquer was used as a finishing touch after handcutting and layering the flower petals.  My cardstocks are by bazzill and My Mindseye Christmas stack.  Poinsettia flower was by Prima.  My gorgeous ribbon is by Paper Temptress.
