Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for the week is Lemon Shortbread.  

And here is the card I created:
I've been feeling like I need to get a move on making my Christmas cards and it just so happened that I had this beautiful image to work with.  I had the ornament on the right already in my bits and pieces stash (I used some red flocking and gold glitter to create it), so I die cut a second one out of dark red card stock for the sentiment.  The patterned papers strips were the perfect size, I just had to trim some length off them to fit the card.
