Jingle Belles 05

This week the challenge on Jingle Belles was to make a card based on a sketch (click and you can check it out). Nice and simple - just my speed in general and this week. Used some Basic Grey paper, a SU! stamp (retired) and some cute little Prima poinsettia flowers that I found on sale at Michael's. In general I'm trying to stay away from purchasing anything but these babies were marked down quite a bit (from 6.99 to 2.99 and I had a gift card!) And I made use of my Top Note die yet again - but the stitching is machine (which seems obvious as its not quite so perfect... but I thought I'd make that clear). Oh and a couple of yellow brads I had laying around. I'm loving this Jingle Belles challenge every week - if you're not playing - think about it !
