CC352.....Merry Christmas

Happy Hump Day Peeps
So sorry for the late post, I had this schedule to go live this morning and it didn't and since I was busy with other things today I did not notice.

This is a card I made using the Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and the Paper Players Challenge to create a Christmas card using non traditional  colors are non holiday stamps. I used the Stampin Up Array of Sunshine stamp set to create my Christmas roses. 
Altho the flowers look pink I assure you they are stamped with my real red ink pad. The lighter flower is just made by stamping the flower stamp again with out re-inking.
I made the holly leaves with my oval and slit punches. I know what you are thinking, holly does not have flowers, it has berries, but I think the holly leaves look nice and give the card a winter/Christmas feel.
The DSP is from the Holly Berry Bouquet pack and I added a pretty bow, of course. The sentiment on here is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set

Just wanted to give you a heads up to check out this post at Vintage Paper Designs where she has featured my tree ornaments in her Vintage Paper Holiday Inspiration. What an honor, and she was so sweet to contact me about them. There is some really cute ideas in her post and I am thrilled to be included!!

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and
