"Winter Scenes"

I have had this card in my head from the moment that I laid eyes on this gorgeous set!  This is my attempt at a DIY poinsettia.  I die cut a ton of poinsettia leaves in various sizes and then stamped them all with the sheet music.  Then I sponged them in crumb cake and rose or green.  I finished my flower center with some glue dots and miniature gold glass marbles.  Pink poinsettias are my absolute favorite.  Of course, now that I type this, my darling six year old daughter says, "What is this, a water lily pad thing?"
Oh well, I tried!  Wait...I know, I'll ask my dear readers to weigh in with their opinion.  What sort of flower have I come up with here?
 
Now, you might notice that my flower hangs over the side of my A2 sized card.  A regular invitation envelope will mangle this card.  Check back in the next few days to see the larger envelope that I will make to house this beauty. 
 
Thanks for coming by and don't forget to visit Sue next!!

Toni it is probably a poinsettia, but to me I am reminded of a water lily! Just needs the lake and warmer weather here!!
