Glorious Christmas

I have to say this is one of my favorite cards that I have created lately. I used the Seems a Little Sketchy sketch, the For Fun recipe challenge (use 1 sentiment as the main image, 2 ribbons, and 3 brads or buttons), the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge #61 to use either ribbon or a charm, and the Make it Monday #55 challenge to create a large frame out of smaller frame stamps.


This picture shows the frame image I used to create the larger frame. It is from PTI's "Places, Please" set as is the tree image stamped in the circles and on the white ribbon. By using the oval die cut behind my sentiment panel (sentiment is from Verve's "Richly Blessed" set), those frames look like they are one. I really liked this technique. I already have plans to try it again with a different frame set. The ribbon is Ripe Avacado from PTI, the papers are DCWV Christmas pack.
