Christmas Card Challenges

Good morning everyone.  This is my first post as a Design Team member for Christmas Card Challenges and we have a color challenge for you.  I am excited to be a part of this fabulous team.  I wasn't sure if I would have a card to share due to my recent accident, but I am plugging along with my left hand.

Here is the color challenge photo :

Here is my card.
I used MFT Smooth White CS and DSP from DCWV Ledger Stack (gray) and Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love 6x6 pad (green).   SU Garden Geen for the leaves.  The poinsettia was made with the Spellinders die, I inked it before removing the dies, and then added a silver glitter brad by Recollections.  The silver ribbon is from SU.  The sentiment if from SU Greetings of the Season stamped in Garden Green and cut with Spellbinders Classic Oval & Scalloped Oval dies.

Thanks for stopping by.  Now check out all the great inspiration by my team members over at Christmas Card Challenges.
