Ariana for Christmas?

I love the way this card turned out! I made it for these two challenges:

Merry Monday
52 Christmas Card Throwdown

I used the pink and lime green paper from the Ariana paper pack, and I used the new CTMH quatrefoil embossing folder. I think it gives it a nice Christmas-y look.  The challenge at 52CCT was to use paper flowers, so I cut some poinsettias out with Art Philosophy and used the AP Celebration stamp on them. The holly leaves and the sentiment came from A Holiday. The sketch and color scheme are the 100th challenge at Merry Monday.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Ariana Coral, White Daisy
B&Ts: Ariana
Stamps: A Holiday, Art Philosophy Celebrations
Ink: Hollyhock, Pear
Other: Boutique Assortment, Quatrefoil Embossing Folder
