True Gift

August already???!!!  Where is the time going?  Since it is the beginning of a new month, it is time for another challenge from Craft Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is an Anything Christmas-related Goes challenge and you have all month to play along.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is my card for your inspiration:
I played off the sentiment with my present patterned paper and I used the ribbon to look like it was tied around a package.  I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us.  Hop on over to the CHNCC2 blog for the full details and to see what the rest of the DT came up with.

Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Christmas Words--Jesus" digi; Verve "Richly Blessed" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large" and "Standard Scalloped Ovals, large"
