Happy Holidays - Double Trouble Challenge #128

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #128 "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing".  Twisted Sister's optional twist to use "stenciling" somewhere in your project was perfect for my CTMH Cherish floral stamp, stencil and die set. I still need a few more Christmas cards and decided on red and green traditional colors would be used for my brush stenciling. 

Floral was stamped, three stencils were used for the different colors and cut with the thin die.  The green fern was colored with a dark green Copic brush pen, added white dots in the center of the flowers, glitter pen on the flowers and Novo drops to the berries.  

Had problem matching up reds so decided to use a black and white snowflake patterned paper (which has been in my stash before the Pandemic), and adhere it to Candy Apple cardstock and then to card base. Used thin foam tape on the floral and adhered to the snowflake background to add dimension. That paper looks so rich against the pop of the red floral. Sentiment was also on the Color Sheet, cut sentiment, added a very thin layer of Candy Apple cardstock and adhered direct to background.

Very pretty floral that's perfectly paired with the snowflakes for this holiday design. Stencilling sure does beat colouring if you're short on time.

I love the snowflakes behind the flower cluster, so pretty and not to busy but just the right amount to let the flowers shine! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H).
