Double Trouble #115 "Christmas in July" partnering with Color Dare #503

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #115 "Christmas in July" and teaming up with ColorMyHeart Color Dare #503 "Crazy 8" Color Board below.  

ColorMyHeart Color Dare "Crazy 8" Board rules: Simply pick any four of the eight blocks. Color names are CTMH and are only for reference; but you are welcome to use any products as long as the colors are the closest match. If you want to use additional blocks, it's your choice as long as you use only blocks included in the Square. Free to use are Black, White, Gold, and Silver, which can be used in addition to your four chosen blocks.

My 4 Blocks were Candy Apple, New England Ivy, Avocado and Flower(s) theme to make my Christmas card.  

Blended New England Ivy and Pear (substituted for Avocado) inks on Daisy White cardstock for my background. Stamped with Daisy White Ink one of the larger poinsettias stamps and then heat embossed with red. Layered the other larger poinsettia stamp on top and with same procedure of heat embossing.  

The two smaller poinsettias were stamped using the same embossing procedure.  The fern stamps were added randomly among the poinsettias and heat embossed with gold.  The poinsettias didn't seem to stand out so I took a gold uni-ball pen and outlined and filled in the detail of each poinsettia. Took the same gold pen and just added dots to the background.  

Sentiment was stamped with New England ink on white cardstock, blended in the two greens to match the background and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.
