Very Merry 25th

We have just enough time in 2021 for one more challenge! Double Trouble Challenge #99 is underway and the duration of the challenge has been extended through Sunday evening, January 2, 2022. As usual, we have three "Things" for you to consider:

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker says that the theme is, "It's Up to You." Be sure to check the guidelines at the DTC99 Blog.

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare suggests you link up with The Paper Funday Challenge #36 to earn a chance at our randomly drawn prize. They'll be looking for your project.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister is hoping to find a number on your project that represents a special age or date. Adding the optional twist will earn you another chance at the randomly drawn prize.

My card was inspired by the fact that December 12 is Poinsettia Day (and my birthday). Once I had the card nearly finished, I decided to use "25th" on my card because I have a Christmas theme.

The Design Teams have cards for you to view at the DTC99 Blog and The Paper Funday Challenge #36 so we hope you'll submit your project, too!

(All materials are Stampin' Up! except for the computer-generated "25th".)
