Poinsettia Wreath

This wreath card was made mostly with a punch and die cuts.  First, I used Memory Box background die (diamond/stars) on white and glued it to white. Now it looks like a deeply embossed background.
I cut a ring from fun foam (mentioned today by my friend, Sabrina) I thought that was a great idea because now I don't have to add foam tape to the bottom to pop it up.
I punched a bunch of "pine branches" with a Martha Stewart punch in silver, white linen, white opalescent and white glossy and filled my ring making my wreath. Then I die cut a bunch of small poinsettia pieces (Memory Box) and formed them with a stylist and foam pad (needs to be dense like a mouse pad). I put the pieces together to form my flowers and glued them to the wreath with a leaf or two between each and at the ends.  I also used a Cheery Lynn holly flourish (just the flourish) on each side.  I added silver studs and white pearls for ornaments.  Added silver microbeads to centers of flowers.
I used a "Bow Easy" to create the 4 loop bow and some silver thread at the top as a hanger.
Lastly, silver heat embossed the Christmas Cheer and cut it out then glued it to my card!
