Happy Christmas

I had so much fun putting this card together!  It was fast and simple, and it will make a great holiday greeting.  I used the sketch from Heart 2 Heart Challenges:

It's always so natural and fun for me to use Close To My Heart products.  The colors blend perfectly, and I love that I have ink for every exclusive color.  (Once a consultant, always a fan that spreads the good about CTMH!!)

I combined this challenge with the Weekly Christmas Card Challenge (distressing) and Keep it Simple (bling).  Loads of distressing on this card and 45 bitty sparkles!  They are so much fun!

Items used (All CTMH unless noted): Jingle Level 2; A Little Bit of Everything stamp set; White Daisy Bigger Brads; Juniper Ink; Bitty Sparkles; Edge Distresser; Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Oval
