Poinsettias for CCAYR April Challenge!

Good Afternoon all you lovely Crafters and I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.  If you're not feeling too well, I hope you perk up soon.
We have quite nice weather today, Alistair was even sitting out in the garden reading for a wee while, he's hardy though, It's just too cold yet for me

This is just a short post for my CCAYR inspirational card for April's Challenge which this time around is poinsettias and an extra option of including a doily.
I used a Topper with poinsettias on it, I had this last year and didn't use it
Anita Sentiment
Gold Mirri, Background paper came with the topper, but I can't remember which make it is.
SB poinsettias die, made from card, tissue paper and sparkly vellum
Sizzix Flourish and Leaves dies
Dovecraft Doily
The Ribbon Girl Crushed Gold ribbon
pearls from my box
Glamour Dust in Crystal

I hope it gives you some inspiration, but remember to visit CCAYR and see what my fellow DTs have made.

About Jaggery - it is a sugar either made from the sap of the coconut palm or from sugarcane juice. This is boiled and solidified into blocks. We use it as a sweetener. Indian Ayurvedic medicine considers jaggery as a wholesome sugar beneficial to health.
