Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge GC84

It's time for another Color Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations, and this week's colors to inspire you are Snow, Pine and Mahogany.  For my card I pulled out Artistic Outpost's Sleigh Ride stamp set and my Copics for the main image.  I also stamped a pine branch from AO's Snowy Woods set all around the edges and added a few Stickles "berries."  I finished it off with a felt poinsettia created using Tim Holtz's Alterations dies (Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaves).

I hope you'll have time to play along with us!!  The good news is that the challenge runs through January 23rd, so even if you can't play before Christmas, it's a great palette to use for getting a jump on next year's cards after the holidays are over.   It's also a great one to use for all those holiday thank yous. ;)

Stay warm and stay safe!

Hi Jean. Another beautiful card. Love the "tartan" background and the flower, did you use a scrap of tartan for the leaves?
