Merry Monday......Season's Greetings

I woke up yesterday with Christmas on the brain and I wanted to make a card with one of my favorite sets. 
This is Stampin Up's Beautiful Season,  and besides Greeting Card Kids this would be an all time favorite of mine.
Don't you love that pretty image with the holly, berries and chickadee?
I made this card using this week's Merry Monday Challenge.

I started my card with a base of Crumb Cake card stock and then followed that with some Cherry Cobbler card stock and the DSP on here is from the Festival of Prints pack. I love the colors in this pack, I hope SU makes more of this size packs in the future!!

The sentiment on here is from the retired Four Holidays set.
I had fun making this one and I also started a new project a 3-D Christmas ornament made with my favorite non SU Holiday paper, I will be showing you that sometime next month and keep an eye out for a couple of exciting announcements coming up!!

Stunning! Love every detail of your card Vicki, just beautiful. Would you believe I still haven't used this gorgeous image and I have had the stamp set for some time. Might have to case this card.

I love the use of the DSP paper pack you used with this card. Tying it in with the cardinal makes this Christmas card wonderful!
