Power and Spark Rewind Challenge!

It's beginning to look a lot like the mess before my house and especially the stamp room! As I "make merry" with all things ink and ribbon and jingle bells, chalkboard paint and stamps...but you wouldn't know it by coming I hope to add a few of my Christmas cards and projects in the next few days!
This month my favorite stamp company, Power Poppy, is having a "Rewind Challenge," a repeat of any challenges over the past year. I chose to do the "Embellish It" challenge as that is what I do most often.
This Poinsettia card is watercolored and embellished with some intricate lacy dies and a big floppy bow of a pretty mix of Christmas ribbons and pearls.

I chose a soft vignette and even though it doesn't show the depth of reds and greens, it does make for a dreamy effect. Speaking of dreamy...the snow has left drifts among the pines and Christmas lights sparkle underneath. 
I am also entering my card for this week's Wordart Wednesday scripture challenge blog, "Anything Goes."
Wishing you joy as you prepare your heart for Christmas this year.

You've inspired me to get to watercoloring again. It's been forever!! I hope you have the Merriest of Christmases!!
