Christmas Card Challenges #23

Good morning!  Welcome to this week's Christmas Card Challenges.  It's a color challenge with some great winter kind of colors.

For this card, I used a card base of Tip Top Taupe to which I attached a layer of Whisper White.  The sentiment is from the Reason for the Season stamp set and stamped using Basic Gray ink.  For the horizontal strip, I used Sahara Sand and added a length of crochet trim from my stash.  The poinsettia is from the Reason for the Season stamp set.  I stamped the poinsettia onto some Whisper White using VersaMark, then heat embossed it with Pewter Embossing Powder.  For the leaves I used a Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker and colored inside the leaves.  In the center of the flower, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels as well as a few on the card itself.

For all the challenge details and to share your project, visit Christmas Card Challenges.  We'd love to have you join us.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
