Color Dare #372 Meets Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch #329

This lovely card came together very quickly following two wonderful challenge blogs. 

My colors are from the left column of Color Dare #372's Tic-Tac-Toe board--Candy AppleEvergreen, and Gold.  I smooshed the ink colors onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water and used a brush to paint.  (The poinsettia had been embossed in black to make the colors stay separate.) 

The poinsettia image is from Close to My Heart Traditional Holiday which is now retired.  The Happy Holidays greeting is from this month's Stamp of the Month called Reindeer Crossing.  The background panel was embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder.  The stripe is Gold Shimmer Trim.  The flower center was enhanced with Golden Rod Stickles Glitter Gel.

Here is the fabulous Hand Stamped Sentiment sketch that inspired my card layout:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
      Heart 2 Heart--Anything Goes--Holiday Edition
      Make My Monday--Anything Goes Christmas
     Aud Sentiments--Christmas/Winter with a Sentiment
     CAS on Friday--Christmas

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
