Exciting News - Christmas Card Challenges!

Hi everyone!  I don't know if you saw the announcement here last month, but I've joined another design team!  This time it's the Christmas Cards Challenge.  I'm very excited to have been chosen to be on this team so I can have a good reason to work on Christmas cards ahead of time! 
 
So this is my first challenge with the team, and the challenge this week is to use a stencil on your card.  Pfft...easy challenge for me since I have lots of stencils! I used a Tim Holtz stencil and distress ink to create the panel that the lovely poinsettia is on.  I've had this poinsettia die for a while and just had to pull it out for this challenge.  I used yellow ink to match the center of the flower.  I sprayed the white panel in back with some gold spray ink to {sort of} match the yellow ink.  The sentiment was stamped in black.  Very simple card that could be mass produced very easily.
 
I followed this sketch from Seize the Sketch.

Please stop by these blogs to get some inspiration from the CCC design team.
