Color Dare #272--Traditional Christmas Colors

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  We have lots of special things going on in December--2 challenges running until December 31st with unlimited chances to enter, a collaboration with Heart 2 Heart challenge and the possibility of winning several prizes!

Today's card was created using some Close to My Heart Traditional Christmas colors:  New England Ivy, Cranberry, White Daisy and Gold.  The poinsettias were fussy cut from the Beary Christmas paper and the New England Ivy CS was texturized with the CTMH Buffalo Plaid embossing folder.  The Gold Shimmer Brush was used to frame the white squares.  The 3 cranberry dots were cut using a standard 1/4" hole punch and then embellished with Clear Shimmer Brush.  The Merry Christmas greeting is from the retired Artfully Sent Stamp collection and was gold embossed on Vellum.

Here is the Sunday Stamps Sketch that inspired my card layout:  

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
     Aud Sentiments Challenge--Christmas and a                       Sentiment
     Simon Says--Anything Goes
     The Merry Christmas Challenge--Anything Goes                 Christmas
