Ribbon Carousel Anything Goes

Hello Friends!
There is still time to play in the Ribbon Carousel Challenge this month; the theme is "Anything Goes".  It doesn't get easier than that!  You can play along for your chance to win a Ribbon Carousel!
We are getting down to the wire, as far as Christmas cards go AND as far as the Ribbon Carousel being open.  If you don't have your own carousel yet, you can still get one for $45 (that's half off!) through December 18th!  Has a Ribbon Carousel been on YOUR wish list?  
Only one more week until Christmas and I am still making Christmas cards!  I used Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Poinsettia Stamp Set and lots of glitter for this card.

 Although I am not a huge glitter fan, I have always admired those perfect strips of glitter that I have seen on cards.  I finally pulled out the Scor-Tape and gold glitter and went to work.  I really like how this turned out- more than enough glitz, but not over the top.  The poinsettia was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and the outermost leaves were lightly watercolored.  I then stamped and embossed the flower a second time and fussy cut it out, only including the all-white leaves/petals.  I never know what to call a poinsettia flower, as it is really leaves that we refer to as a flower! 
Also, you may have noticed that the sentiment is not centered.  That is a Fail on my part as I thought I was going to have a bow to the right of the sentiment, but that did not happen.  Seeing as the sentiment was already glued down, well, it was going to have to stay off center!
I used Liquid Pearls instead of pearl bling for this card, which reminded me of why I usually do not use Liquid Pearls!
But for all of my mishaps and Oopies, I really do like how this turned out, and I hope you do too!
With all of the glitter here, I am entering this card in the Great Impressions Challenge, which is to use glitter. 

Remember, to play in Ribbon Carousel's, 'Anything Goes' Challenge, you must follow these rules-
