I Don't Color, But I Did!

Hard to find a card on my blog that's been colored--other than messy watercoloring with Zigs.  But yesterday I did a bit of coloring for my one layer Christmas card. 
PTI Botanical Blocks IV was heat embossed on a kraft card.  I used a new bright pink gel pen to color the dots & an old green gel pen for the leaves.  Debated a long time & finally thought of watercoloring the poinsettias with Distress Stain antiqued bronze--so beautiful & just what this card needed.  I'm entering the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Time Out Challenges, CAS on Sunday, HLS Christmas & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
