CCMC179 and Pines & Poinsettias

Happy Monday, Stampers! Wow, I can't believe we are beginning the countdown to Christmas already! I spent the weekend mailing my holiday cards, and what do you know, I needed a few more. So I got to work, with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge in mind.

What a fun color combination! I really didn't know what I was going to do with this card other than I thought the color combo would like nice on the pine cone image from the Pines & Poinsettias Stamp Set. I also wanted to try making a card that included the Two Tags Die cut image. So this card evolved from the inside out.

This tag would look cute on its own, also. Just punch a small hole in the top, string some thread through, and you have a great gift giving tag.
