Here Comes Santa Claus

Hello again.  I made a card last night for a sketch challenge at Sweet Sunday and realize that I should have loaded it last night.  I missed the cut off.  Oh well.  I also made it for that challenge at Flourishes "Bring Beautiful Back".  You need to use ribbon.  Well if you visit me often you know I rarely don't use a bow.
 I Love how that Waltzing Mouse Holiday Labels 14 looks behind my SB oval.  Just peeking out the top and bottom.  The sweet little Candy Canes are from Flourishes Sweets of the Season.  They are a match made in heaven.  This is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper and PTI Bitty Dot basics 2009.  Along with PTI Fine Linen satin ribbon.
 I am totally stuck on this PTI die for all my cute little tags.  It fits almost all my Flourishes sentiments perfectly.  A little Tim Holtz ditress ink in Walnut Stain for the edges of all my paper and Antique Linen for the inside of my oval.  Oh I almost forgot...I put a little Xmas red Stickles on my berries.


 The 2 challenges I used for my card:


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
Heather
