Poinsettia - Peace on Earth

It seems an age since I posted a card as I've had this on the verge of being complete since my Dad had his accident.
I used the Penny Black Poinsettia and the Serendipity Peace on Earth Stamps onto matching cardstock and embossed with gold powder, I cut them out using Nestabilities and layered onto Gold Card stock befor adding them to the base card I finished with a contrasting ribbon.
simple but effective.
