GDT for My Crafting Heaven - Poinsettia

I am   delighted to do another  Guest Spot for My Crafting Heaven this time  showcasing the digital stamp 'Poinsettia'.   Christine Gray  sent me an image of  this beautiful flower to post for  her  Oct.10th showcasing  of this image. It is hard to tell but the poinsettia's second and third layers are popped up for dimension.I have seen many lovely different coloured poinsettia's the last few years so I went with a cream coloured one, rather than the traditional scarlet and red.    Christine's wonderful digital stamps  can be found  here at her shop! You can also visit her blog here: My Crafting Heaven.

I posted the bottom picture so you could see the spotted background paper, in the top picture it appears more black like than it really is (although I must admit it is rather hard to see in that photo too).
