Memories & More Meets FMS 316 and GDP117

The minute I saw the colors for this week's Global Design Project challenge, I knew I would look through the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit.  I first decided on the centerpiece, which I cut down, rounded the corners, and added a sentiment with Real Red.  That led to my decision to use the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock for the card base.  I was able to find other elements from the Memories & More kit to add the strip with black and white holly behind the main element and the polka dotted Lemon Lime Twist strip on the front.
I decided to add holly as the unifying element and created that element with Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red cardstock and the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  I finally added Wink of Stella detail to the leaves and berries to add a bit of shine.
