A Merry Little Christmas

Here is another card for the Color My Heart Color Dare Combination Challenge #322 - #323. This blog post represents Challenge #323Challenge #322 was posted on December 7 and can be seen HERE.

A panel of pink cardstock and a panel of shiny paper were adhered to a gray card base. From the 6" x 6" paper pack, I fussy cut the poinsettia. The snowflake and sentiment were from a separate packet complementing the paper pack. The sentiment was matted with silver foil paper and adhered. A few star-shaped sequins were also added. The snowflake was adhered using foam tape. The poinsettia was given additional color using colored pencils, then adhered with foam tape. The inside was lined with a white panel, decorated with a pink foil Christmas tree and more star-shaped sequins. I added a stamped sentiment, "wishing you a season of gladness, a season of cheer, and to top it all off, a wonderful year."
