Another Pan Pastel Poinsittia

While I had my pan pastels out a few weeks ago I coloured my larger poinsettia die cut. For this card I use the Tim Holtz Christmas stencil and distress inks to create my background, the colours blend from a deep blue to gray.

I use my Viva Decor Pearl pen to put the silver flowers at the centrel

I hope you like the card, I'm entering it for the following challenges-
