Feeling of Christmas - H2H Challenges

Hello! Today I have a super easy challenge for you from H2H challenges...Anything Goes - Holiday Edition. So you can create anything you want as long as it is Holiday related and features at least one CTMH product. 

For this challenge, I went old school and pulled out my Tis the Season leftovers and created this card. I am a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas, I all about the red and greens. I do like to play with the non traditional colours but in my heart Christmas is red and green. I love holly and poinsettias and all those things so this card really speaks to me!


Products Used:

Paper:
- Tis the Season
- Candy Apple, Fern, and White Daisy card stock

Ink:
- Candy Apple and New England Ivy

Stamp:
- D1678 White Pines (retired)
