MID-WAY REMINDER FOR HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #208 ~ "ANYTHING CHRISTMAS - NO RED OR GREEN"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We are halfway through the challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and we'd love you to join us. You can make "Anything Christmas - NO Red or Green" or you can choose "Anything Goes" as your theme to use with your House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamps by House-Mouse Designs®. Here's my card using "Joyful Noel" and "Jumbo Poinsettia" by Stampendous and "Merry Christmas" from the Hero Arts October Kit:

I watercolored the background using "Seedless Preserves", "Dusty Concord", "Chipped Sapphire" and "Stormy Sky" Tim Holtz Distress inks and added some water droplets for added texture. Then I stamped the images with Versa Fine ink and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils. I added "Silver Pearl" Liquid Pearls to the center of the Poinsettia and outlined it with Stickles.

Now on to the Challenge Details:

Thanks ever so much, Lozzie! Our craft stores sell artificial poinsettias in lots of different colors and my favorite are the pale blue ones with the glittered edges. They were my inspiration for this card. ~ Snoopy :D
