Christmas Blessings

 Hello friends.  I have another Christmas card to share today.

ETA:  My card was a Top Pick at The Krafty Chicks


and also a Team Pick at Tic Tac Toe Challenge 


and an Honorable Mention at The Flower Challenge. 

I made my card using the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board and went with the left row down (green, holiday floral and scoring or embossing) and the middle row across (holiday floral, free, and red).
I used Spellbinders Holiday Blooms for the pretty poinsettias in Real Red and foliage in Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.  I layered 2 large and 1 small poinsettias together and added 3 gold gems in the middle.  I added these to a white panel embossed with Spellbinders Forever green EF and then to a thin mat of Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment from Taylored Expressions In and Out Christmas is gold embossed, then fussy cut.and mounted with foam tape.  I also added Wink of Stella to the small buds but it doesn't show up in the photo.

I am adding this to The Flower Challenge - Add Embellishments (gold beads to the flower centers)
