CAS Christmas Blessings!


Hello friends!  
Today I am sharing a card I made for another class sample for the ODBD Christmas Card classes.  I used Poinsettia Wreath, The Custom Poinsettia Wreath Die, as well as Cardinal Ornament (sentiment) and Poinsettia Background.  This card is pretty CAS (Clean and Simple) but I love how it came out.  I stamped the Poinsettia background with two shades of T Holtz Distress Ink: Bundled Sage and then touched with Pine Needles.  I cut a mat for that layer from Cherry Cobbler card stock which I die cut on the bottom with a Spellbinders A2 Bracket Border.  The image itself is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics, and cut out with the custom die.  I stamped one extra poinsettia and die cut it and popped it up on the wreath.  The card base is vanilla and the sentiment is stamped with Cranberry Crisp Ink. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:
 Fab 'n' Funky  #192  Traditional Christmas colors
     Penny's Paper-Crafty #152 Lots of layers
                         Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge Must be Christmas-  Traditional Colours
                                      Through The Craft Room Door  Alway's Anything Goes
Try It On Tuesday  Colour Explosion

I'm short on time today, so will keep this short!  Have a blessed day!!!
