A Holly Jolly Holday Card

It's Christmas Time! And I love Christmas Carols, so  the theme of this Christmas Card is Holly Jolly Christmas.

This one is sort of simple and elegant. I used Joys of the Season for the holly leaves, and Storybook for the tag on the bottom. The sentiment is from Recollections, and the tag has black brads from American crafts. The flocked paper is from 7 Gypsy's, and the striped paper is from DCWV. The pearl button is a brad that I picked up a few years ago in the Michael's clearance rack, and I have no idea who makes it.It is very heavy though, and I had to affix it with the hot glue gun. Guessing it will take extra postage to mail due to the weight.

I decided to enter this one into a few challenges (why not, I hardly ever enter challenges):

1. Little Scrap Pieces - Winter Holiday

2. 2 Sisters Challenge - Holiday

3. Crafty Sprouts - Tag it

2. Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Holiday Cards

Wish me luck! Happy Crafting.
