I am also entering this into three other SCS challenges:
2017 Christmas Cards - March - CC17MAR, which requires poinsettias or floral, which is why when "improving" my Letter I card, I decided I should add poinsettias!
Dare to Get Dirty Christmas Challenges: September 2017 - SCSCCSEP17, which requires a card based on Christmas "memories." My Christmas memory was a family tradition started when I was little, and that I carried on with my four children. On every Christmas Eve, Mom read the book (which is actually a poem) "The Night Before Christmas" while my brother, my little sister, and I, drank our hot chocolate with a candy cane and marshmellows...fun times and warm and fuzzy memories this brings back!
My next challenge entry is for Teapot Tuesday #447--"On Dasher, On Dance, Is That a Tractor?" Bring some Christmas Cheer, some trees, decorations, presents, lights; especially lights. We need to get the Christmas spirit flowing. My card is definitely all about Christmas with twinkling starlight in the night sky!
My final challenge entry is for "Use It 2017," which requires you to give some love to "forgotten" stamps, dies, paper...in your Stash! My old 1996 stamp works for sure!

Just as gorgeous!'oh my, you have a winner here.
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?

Lovely Christmas memories, I love traditions, and a gorgeous Christmas card. I really loved last week's card and this one is gorgeous as well. I love the effect of the card builder dies (I think that is what they are called) framing your panel and those poinsettias are a wonderful addition. Wonderful card.
