Counting Christmas Blessings

TGIF ladies.. I'm so happy its Friday and I have the whole weekend off..
anyway, I spent the last week working on this layout.. I have the tutorial for the making of the poinsettias on our challenge blog Stuck On U Sketches.. I hope you get a chance of checking us out.. I love pushing myself to see what I can up with next..
so here are some close ups and the details to the making of this layout..

Here is a close up of the title..
I used my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software for the title.. the font for the word "CHRISTMAS" is called "BoyzRgross" and the cursive font is called "Palace Script"..

and here is a close up of the poinsettias..
The tutorial can be found at SOUS by clicking HERE.
I did add some more little detail to the big poinsettia than the smaller ones.. it was just easier that way..

and a side pic of the poinsettias.. its pop dotted and put together piece by piece..  it was a lot of work, but I absolutely LOVE how it came out..
