A Country Christmas

This past week was pretty crazy so I didn't have much time to get craft, and then we went to Anchorage on Saturday for the second weekend in a row to go watch the It movie and do some shopping. Today is finally my lazy day and so I've been trying to catch up in my craft room!

Today's card combines 2 challenges...the Hues to Use colors from Power Poppy and a tic-tac-toe challenge from Jingle Belles. The Power Poppy colors were used as a last ode to summer on their blog but I instantly saw Christmas colors!

I brought the red and the lighter green from the color challenge into the ornaments hanging off the branches. The darker green was brought in on the package and the DSP I used for the background. I used neutrals for watering can, branches and DSP.

For the tic-tac-toe I went with red/card stock/bling. It's hard to see but I used Stickles on the berries on and on the package. The red isn't the main color but it's definitely on the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
