A Very Merry Christmas To You

Hi again,
This is my second post this evening.

Here is my card to play along with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #68. Yes, another Christmas card. I'm so happy to be adding more to my 2012 stash. I believe that I've mentioned before that this SU set is one of my very favorites this year, and I just love using it. So many options with it, and just too cute.

The DSP is from the SU Holiday Mini catalog. I'm liking the red and browns together. Instead of using a scalloped border, I used the mini banner Framelits and made a flag border. I've seen some of these around blogland and like the look so I decided to give it a try.

Here's a look at the inside:

Stamps: Scentsational Season set by Stampin' Up
Paper: SU Very Vanilla and Real Red card stock and Candlelight Christmas DSP
Ink: SU Early Expresso, Crumb Cake and Real Red classic ink pads
Other: classic circle Nesties, SU Scentsational Season Framelits, SU Mini Banner Framelits, SU Edgelits, SU snowflake dies, red buttons, twine, sewing machine, Kaiser red rhinestones, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

Have a great week all and thanks,
