The Paper Players........Christmas

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week on The Paper Players Blog.
This week it is a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge:

I went with the top line, Christmas, Sparkle/Bling and Ribbon.
I used a favorite Stampin Up set called "A Beautiful Season" I love this set and love to color this pretty bird/holly image.
I stamped the image onto a piece of confetti cream cardstock that I had cut out with the top note die. 
I colored with my water brush and ink pads, using cherry cobbler for the berries, old olive for the heaves and crumb cake and basic gray on the bird.

For my sparkle/bling I used some of the silver glimmer paper from Stampin Up. I used some small scraps and just cut the edges of the top note and tucked it under the sides of the main piece. I don't want to waste that glimmer paper.... wink, wink!

I just got a package of the Stampin Up Tulle Ribbon and wanted to use it on my card. I was so surprised with this wonderful tulle ribbon, so easy to work with! Love it and will be getting the other colors, I had only ordered the cherry cobbler at first to play with to see if I liked it.
The sentiment is from the same set and stamped at the bottom with black stazon. I cut off one edge of the top note and lined it up with the edge of my card.
The DSP on here is from the Festival of Prints pack.
I finished it off with three basic pearls in the top corner! 

Thanks for stopping by today and

Very awesome card. Love the bird and love the colors. If I could make it as well as you, I would probably make this card for my Christmas card...... but I know that it is not possible for me.
