Four Challenges fused into one card

Let's see if I can stretch a trifecta of challenges to a quartet combined into one card:

Short summary: (1) use of title (Merry Christmas); (2) use Christmas theme (title & snowman); (3) use colors of red, green, and grey; and (4) use sketch (same orientation, just substituted flowers for snowman, metallic striped tapes, and clips; and I didn't use the thin strip all the way to the bottom).

Challenge #1: 2nd entry [theme is optional as long as I use a title/sentiment message]

Challenge #2: 2nd entry [Christmas theme]

Challenge #3: 2nd entry [color palette]

Challenge #4: 1st entry [sketch layout]

More photos:

All the patterned cardstocks and striped patterned paper are from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). The red cardstock is the Astrobrights line from Neenah Papers, Inc. Image is clip art or coloring book freebie found during an online search last Christmas and I had 2 remaining, so now I'm left with one. Merry Christmas was stamped on white paper with red ink and then a grey colored pencil was used to lightly fill color around the lettering and offer a bit of depth. I love the juxtaposition of 2 flowery printed cardstocks for this Christmas theme card! It adds some whimsical charm. Overall dimensions are just over 4" x 6".

Still crafting in the USA heartland, Becca S
