A Simple Christmas Christmas Card

I happily stumbled upon a Christmas challenge blog called JINGLE BELLES.
This challenge is playing bingo to create a card, just simple choose a row and create. What fun!!.............


I chose the center vertical line. The tree is a Memory Box die called Flowering Christmas Tree that can be purchased at Ellen Hudson Store. My sweet friend Betsy sent me these dies~Lucky me! I cut it out with my treasured Silver Mirror Paper and using red scrap paper I die cut the Memory Box Flower Mound and added some of the biggest flowers from it and added Stardust stickles to the centers.  Popped it up on a Spellbinders Classic Long Rectangle &Scalloped Rectangle. Mounted it over a swirly embossed panel
The sentiment is Impression Obsession's Happy Christmas-A5283 , stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Then punched out with a 1-1/4 inch circle punch.  Love this sparkly ribbon from the dollar store!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Have a fabulous day!
