The CAS Challenges - Christmas, Watercolor and Mix-Up

It's not often I make a card that fits three challenges and I really didn't plan it that way but when it all came together my card worked for three of the four CAS challenges:  CAS Christmas, CAS Watercolor and CAS Mix-Up.
It started with the Altenew poinsettia that I thought I could do in pink and red for the Watercolor challenge.  For the Christmas challenge I needed to use the word "peace" so I combined it with the Mix-Up challenge to add dimensional die cuts by cutting the word from EBE and stacking it up four times.  So for Mix-Up I stamped and heat embossed the poinsettia, watercolored it, added a hidden sentiment and because the tape tore a tiny piece of the watercolor paper when I removed the die, I added a few sequins.  I was quite pleased with the results if I do say so myself.

Thanks for dropping by.  I do hope you'll check out these wonderful challenges.
