For this challenge you need to use All 3 elements.

#1 This sketch, as inspiration.
#2 Use non traditional colors to make a holiday card,
#3 Add a little sparkle or bling.

Here is my inspiration

 I used two Power Poppy stamp sets on this card. Short Stacks and Daffodils.  I stamped the bouquet on the bottom of the card and colored with copic markers.  Using Purples and blues. a bit of black gingham ribbon from my stash.  The ribbon on the gifts are colored with gold Wink of Stella, but you can't see the shimmer, so i added the gold twine under the sentiment.  That is from a Flourishes stamp set.  It is all on a base of Autumn Rose from PTI.  I did emboss the top of the white panel with a swiss dots folder. 

Thanks for stopping in, you can find the challenge HERE    There is time to enter and it was fun to do something different.
