For my card today I am using Verve's Bright Spirits stamp set.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above Pennant Trim and Winter Fun dies.   
I realized the other day that I had no Christmas cards made yet this year.  Usually I have several completed by now so when December rolls around I have a stash ready to mail.  Makes for one less thing to have on my Christmas "to do" list.  Yikes!   I must get busy!

For this card I broke out some new MME Christmas papers.  I chose to go with more neutral muted tones for this card and let some of the paper's images work for me.  I let the sentiment and sparkly accents be the pop this Christmas card needed for completion.  I am using this week's Mojo Monday sketch257.  I layered my papers, glittered card stock die cuts, added my sentiments, and finished with a seam binding bow.  I totally love the pennant trim die, but I love it even more cut with this glitter card stock.  And, while this tree die cut has a stamp to go with it, it is still beautiful cut with just the glitter card stock. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the super talented Jen d.'s Blog!
