Christmas Card Challenge

Welcome to my blog.  If you've come to my blog from Kim's blog you're in the right place.  The challenge for this week is to create a Christmas card.

I love Christmas, and I love making Christmas cards.  I have so many ideas picked out that I would like to create that it seems impossible that I would ever be able to create them all.  That doesn't stop me from trying, or finding other cards that I want to recreate.  

The card that I chose to recreate for this challenge is one that was in the Close to my Heart catalog last year and I feel in love with it.  
The cardstock used was New England Ivy, Cranberry, and Colonial White.  I used Cranberry embossing powder for the saying, red sparkles, ribbon from the red pack.  The Holly leaves were cut using the Art Philosophy at 2.25 and 1.75 then stamped using the stamp set A Holiday.

I hope you enjoy making your Christmas cards as much I have.  Your next stop on the blog hop is Annette at
