Pretty Pink Poinsietta ~ DD#32 & Merry Monday

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Dynamic Duos color challenge!  It's a monochromatic theme of Pretty in Pink and Rose Red.
I also chose to use a sketch from Merry Monday's Year in Review Challenge, where you can pick any past sketch.  I chose #23.
From the moment I saw this Watercolor Winter set in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I HAD to have it!  I've had so much fun playing with the different images.  I have yet to stamp these flowers in red though!  I seem to gravitate towards non-traditional colors when it comes to these flowers....weird.  That will be my next task.  Stamp these poinsiettas in red.  But for now, I like them in pink!  I fussy cut three and layered them on a bed of Crumb Cake evergreen sprigs, included with the set.  I added some glitter glue to the center of each flower to add some sparkle. 
I added some detail to the button in the form of a tiny tag stamped with the words from The Sounding Joy, and a little pinecone from the Watercolor Winter set.  I added some glitter glue to the pinecone too. :)
Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Watercolor Winter, The Sounding Joy
Paper: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake, White
Ink: Same as paper
Accessories: Pink Gingham ribbon, Petals a plenty EF, Tiny Tag punch, Glitter Glue
