Ugly sweater card!

Hi there!  Have you ever been to an ugly sweater party?!  It is just a regular ole' party, but everyone is supposed to wear an ugly sweater!  Sounds like fun to me!!  Anyhow, today when I made my card and sat back to look at it all I could think of was that for some strange reason it reminded me of an ugly sweater party! LOL  The color combo was bad and the layout looked funny and I had added too much of some things and still it was missing something!!  I stuck it out though and decided I would try to photograph it and see if it looked better....guess what?!  Before I could even take it's picture the wind blew it on the ground and my daughter's chickens stepped on it!!!!  I ran down the stairs and shoo-ed away the feathery little ladies and the silver dazzling diamonds that wasn't quite dry had smeared all over the card!!  Saaaaaay whaaaaat?!  The chickens had silver sparkle all over them because in my haste to shoo and retrieve that silly card there was some flapping and flying and sticking of my card to a before mentioned chicken!!!  I had to chase the chicken to get my card and never did get to take it's picture!  Ahem....needless to say I went back inside trashed my ugly sweater card and started over!  Here is a more reasonable card for today's post (completely free of silver and chicken feathers I might add!):

A simple card with just a few details!  :)

Much better than the first attempt!  I added some faux stitching and stamped some pretty little snowflakes.  The silver is the Bracket Label punch cut in half.  Everything is adhered flat!  No pop dots today!  After the first card debacle I really wanted to play it safe! LOL

Ok then!  My daughter made brownies and they just came out of the oven!  I can hear them calling to me now!  I hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

This is such a wonderfully classic Christmas card, however... I am dying to see a glimpse of the ugly sweater chicken scratched card!!! I bet that was a sight to behold!
