Merry Card for Two Challenges

I made this Christmas card for two challenges. First, I used the PPA#122 here. It's a color challenge to use Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla. Second, I used the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge#178 here.
The base is Cherry Cobbler and I added some Frostwood Lodge DSP. I ran the strips of Very Vanilla thru the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder. I stamped the images from Pennant Parade in Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke. I punched out the star with the Itty Bitty Shapes punches pack. Merry was punched out with the Small Oval punch and layered onto an Cherry Cobbler circle punched with the 1 inch Circle punch. I punched the Artichoke scallop with the 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch and the Vanilla circle with the 1 3/4 inch Circle punch. I popped up the star and tree with Stampin' dimensionals. Finally, some 1/2 inch Always Artichoke seam binding finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Papers: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Inks: Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke
Accessories: Snow Burst embossing folder, 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/4 inch and 1 inch Circle punches, Small Oval punch, Stampin' dimensionals, 1/2 inch Always Artichoke seam binding, Itty Bitty Shapes punches pack
