Lovely challenge!!

Joan, as this is my only 3rd time entering your contest I just want to make sure I am doing it right, when you put down the guide lines, must we use them all or just one.
Like this months, you ask for red and white, additional colors may be used (optional), must a Christmas sentiment be showing as well as well as a light, candle or Christmas lights, and must all elements be on the front of card and showing? Or does it count if only one is used? I am confused, sorry. I would assume if some of the elements are on the inside, you would want to see a picture of the front and the inside? Just going by other challenges I have entered, some you only have to use one of the elements, some ALL, Thanks for letting me know in advance.
