Merry Christmas for 3 challenges

My card base is SU Whisper White and the mat and cross piece are Riding Hood Red.  The turquoise DSP is from an old SU paper pack.  I used Spellbinder's Poinsettia dies (sold at Classy Cards 'N Such) and cut it from Riding Hood Red, inked the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink and shaped the petals.  The center is cut from gold cs and I mounted the flower with foam tape.  The gold ribbon is by Offray.  The sentiment is from SU More Merry Messages.

Here is a photo of the inside which shows a sentiment from Our Daily Breads Christmas Blessings set.  I added a little strip of DSP and red cs to match the front.

ETA:  My card was a runner up at Freshly Made Sketches.
I used Freshly Made Sketches #163 for my layout (I turned the sketch).

Just Us Girls #267 - color challenge (red, turquoise and gold or yellow)

ETA:  I was a winner at Classy Cards 'N Such.
and Classy Cards 'N Such #59 - Christmas Blooms challenge. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Happy Stamping,
