White on White Poinsettia

 I had a request to design an elegant, white on white Christmas card with a poinsettia.  It is no secret that for this task I always want to use my favorite dies by Anja.  For the background, I used the Marianne Design, Anja's Delicate Corner in all four corners of this 6x6" card.  I have the new Marianne Design Anja's Circle die, LR0327;  I used it in the center of the card.

This is a picture of the Marianne Design Anja's Circle die cut.  There are four dies. Isn't it gorgeous!

The two larger pieces of the Anja's Circle were attached together and placed in the center of the card.  To add a little more lace to the card, I added four Joy Craft 6002/0135 corners.  They are tucked in at the center at each side.  

In the center of the doilies, I added the poinsettia I created with Susan's Garden Poinsettia dies.  Light green vellum was used for the poinsettia leave; I wanted just a hint of color for the leaves.  White Pearls were added in the center of the poinsettia and also on the die cuts.

What do you think -- did it turn out elegant?

OH SELMA!!! This is GORGEOUS!!! LOVE ALL the dies, especially the corners. There is something very elegant with white on white. Where do you get your pearls? Are they halves? I definitely need more embellishments. J
