Season's Greetings Poinsettia Card

I found a bright shiny gold package of cardstock at Michael's last week which made me happy.  I was out of gold metallic and this pretty gold (no silver) was on sale for $3.33 (25 sheets package).  It is not a heavy cardstock but I only wanted it for accents.  Plus the lighter weight will help my cards from needing additional postage.  (In case you haven't heard, the post office is increasing postage in January to fifty-five cents for a first class postage stamp.)    The stamp set is one by Recollections I got last year but had not used.  The music embossing folder is by Sizzix.  Another new discovery I made recently are metallic Sharpie pens.  I used a gold to add color and accents to the Copic colored poinsettia images.  The metallic Sharpie package I ordered had two gold, two silver and two copper.  Excited about them for coloring and also addressing pretty envelopes.  These Christmas music loving poinsettias are going to join the fun at:
