 Hi there Crafty Friends! Well Can you believe it's December and so it's the last 52CCT Challenge for 2021! I've so enjoyed making Christmas cards throughout the year and now I have lots of cards to send out!  

We are asking you to choose any prompt from from our challenges of 2021 and I have chosen Gill's sketch from last month.

I stamped the woodgrain pattern with Gold ink and embossed with Ranger Vintage Pearl. 
I made a smooshed background with Brushos and when dry, die-cut the Poinsettia. 
Next I stamped the leaves and sentiment. To finish, I constructed the card as per the sketch and added some gorgeous gold rhinestone for bling. 
Stamp: Kaisercraft Woodgrain Background; Hello Bluebird Joy & Peace
Die: Tim Holtz Sizzix Poinsettia

I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what our fabulous  Design Team have created with this sketch. Looking forward to seeing your cards in the gallery:)

Deadline for entry to this challenge is midnight GMT on Saturday 1st January 2022  -
that's 7.00pm EDT for those of you in the States. 

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-
