My First Christmas Card of 2020

I'm so excited, I created my first Christmas card of 2020 and am entering it into some
 fun challenges this week.  Hope you will play along with me.
The sketch #564 was used as the base from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The card is 6 x 6 square.
Then I made the pretty poinsettia flower using Heartfelt Creations Large Sparkling Poinsettia stamp and die set that had been stamped with Stampabilities Embossing Ink, embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder, and added the gold Rose Hip Large Stamen.
The papers are from Heartfelt's new Snowy Pine Collection as is the sentiment.

Challenges I am entering are:
A Place to Start - Flowers, floral papers, etc.
Winter Wonderland - Hip to be square
Tuesday Morning Sketches -  Sketch #564
The Holly an Ivy Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - N & O are for?
Double Trouble Paper Crafting - Christmas in July / Heart to Heart - Your favorite crafting tool

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
Love & Hugs
Granny Carol
