A Christmas CCEE Challenge and a SALE

Time for another CCEE Challenge---Charlene (who was the challenge hostess for this month) sent each of us the following supplies:

Red starburst translucent paper
Three different poinsettias: dark red; red with yellow cream centre; sheer red.
Gold stretch cord & gold ribbon
Red ornament embellishment
Three snowflakes: white; red & gold

Charlene instructed us to create a Christmas card using some portion of the red designer paper,
using at least one of the poinsettias, using the gold ribbon or cord (or both). The red ornament and snowflakes were optional.

Here is what I created with the supplies:

I chose a sentiment from the Sketches Scrollwork Christmas Set, that is filled with lots of beautiful Holiday phrases. You can find this set at Stamper's Dream and until November 30th... ALL Holiday stamps are on sale for 15% off. Just enter the coupon code HOLIDAYS on the checkout page to apply the discount. (This means that the Partridge stamp I used on yesterday's post is discounted as well! Yipeee!)

You can see all the other fabulous cards by the CCEE Gals HERE!

Thanks for stopping by!
