Merry Christmas swap card!

Hey there!  I know that we haven't even finished cleaning up the stray candy papers from Halloween yet, but I made a Christmas card already!  My demonstrator group meets monthly and our swap theme this month was Christmas cards!  Now since I am one of the world's most brilliant procrastinators I normally wouldn't even begin to think about thinking about Christmas until after Thanksgiving so this one required some real effort on my part! LOL  Here is what I put together:

Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Always Artichoke and Silver Glimmer paper.

I ran the background image through the Petals A Plenty EF and then added silver Dazzling Details to the centers of each of the flowers.

The holly stamp is fro the Make A Mitten stamp set and I used Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke markers to color it.

Gosh!  Christmas really will be here before we know it!  Have you made any Christmas cards yet?! :)  

Have a wonderful Tuesday!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

I absolutely adore this card!! I had talked myself out of that embossing folder, now you've got me wanting it! I like the way you highlighted the bird with the circle and scalloped circle punches. I just got them and am looking for ways to use them:)
