Holly Jolly Christmas Card

Okay, here is a quick late night post. My hubby has bet me that I can't do my post in under ten minutes. That means I must prove him wrong. So, this will be short and sweet. I made this Holly Jolly Christmas Card using the sketch at Mojo Monday and the festive colors from Create with Connie & Mary.

All supplies are by Stampin' Up! I used the new holiday paper from the Trim the Tree paper stack. The little red birds are from the Festival of Trees stamp set and the Holly Jolly sentiment is from the retired Tags 4 You stamp set. The colors used are Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. For my embellishments I used Cherry Cobbler twine and three Baked Brown Sugar sequins. The third one is hiding on the red patterned paper under the bow. Well, my time is up! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back again soon.

  5. So...did you make it in under 10 mins? Sometimes it takes longer to photo, crop, copyright and post then it does to make it! What a DELIGHTFUL card! Love the use of the DSP and all the other little 'touches'! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
