SIP.....Happy Wonderful Christmas

Happy Friday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at 

I wasn't intending to make a Christmas card when I first looked at the Inspiration photo, but after stamping my greenery with the red flower it just sort of happened.

It is a fairly CAS card.
The base is Smoky Slate and then I used another layer of Smoky slate on top of the base.
I stamped the sentiment which comes form the Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath stamp set with black Memento ink across the bottom of the Smoky Slate layer.

The image is from the Bountiful Border stamp set and I used Wild Wasabi and Real red on whisper white card stock.
I matted with some Real Red and then glued to the Smoky Slate layer.
I tied some Real Red bakers twine around the layer and left the tails long.
I used some gold sticky back pearls (non SU) for a bit of bling.
This layer was then glued to the base.

So what do you think of my first Christmas card of the year. I have not gotten any of the new mini items yet but they will be coming soon and I have several ideas swirling around in my head for those goodies.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
