CD 465 - Wonders of the Season Layered Card

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 465!

The tic-tac-toe grid this week contains colours taken from the CMTH paper pack called Holly and Ivy. 

My card meets the following lines: 

    - left diagonal (Sage, Silver, Evergreen)

    - bottom row (Candy Apple, Harbour, Evergreen)

    - middle column (Mink, Silver, Harbour) 

I used a set of retired background dies to create the background. The layers are as follows: Evergreen glitter paper, Harbour cardstock, Silver glitter paper and patterned paper from the Lovely paper pack on top. The pieces for the poinsettia were stamped on coloured cardstock using the same colour of ink and then die cut. I did the same with the branches and the berries. The berry pieces are actually Mink but they look white in the photo. I layered the poinsettia and added the branches and berry stems around the outside. The leaves of the poinsettia were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush and the branches were brushed with the Evergreen Shimmer Brush. I added silver Stickles to the berries. Silver glitter gems were placed in the centre of the poinsettia. The sentiment was embossed in silver and placed at the top of the card.
