Pop Up Poinsettias

I'm back on the Christmas cards again!  I've made a pop up box card using my Mum's Tattered Lace dies to make the box and to do the matting, this time filling it with festive poinsettias.
 The papers are Papermania, Bellissima Christmas, I chose sheets with a poinsettia design to match the die cut toppers that came as a sheet in a Docrafts goody bag years ago, and that, until now, I hadn't got round to using.  The flowers are slightly pearlised and catch the light nicely, I used pearl card for the box base too to the whole card has a Christmassy shimmer.
I used a Tonic die to cut the sentiment from red mirri, it's the perfect size for this box card.
