Paper Playtime Challenge #90 ~ Christmas Colours

Good morning, my friends.  Today is the first Monday of the month and that means a new challenge at Paper Playtime.  Our challenge to you, if you choose to accept it, is to make a project using a die cut of some sort and Christmas colours.  Our sponsor is The Robin's Nest with a chance to win a $15.00 gift certificate to use in their store. 

My interpretation of Christmas colours was green, red and white. Although I am sure there are many ways to interpret Christmas colours most of my design team sisters as well as myself went the traditional route. 
Traditional and very simple:

Inside of card:


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ DCWV "Tis the Season" Stack
Die ~ Your Next Stamp Mini Branch
Sentiment ~ Michaels $1.50 bin
Inside Sentiment ~ Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Christmas Interior
Sentiments Set
Ink ~ CTMH Cranberry
Embossing Powder ~ Stampendous White
Tim Holtz Distress Ink ~ Antique Linen
Ribbon ~ Michaels
Glossy Accents

I cut 50 of the mini branches in 3 different shades of green and placed them on circle which made the wreath base.  The holly berries are just a regular hole punch in groups of three.  I can honestly say that I like the way this card turned out. 

Thanks for dropping in today.  Things are going to get busy for all of us as it is the season but I do hope to have a couple more Christmas projects to share before the end of December.  Please join us at Paper Playtime these next two weeks with your Christmas colours projects.
