Merry .... Christmas?!

It's been so long since I have been able to create and to get involved in a challenge.  It was fun searching for challenges to incorporate into a project.

This card meets the criteria for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge.  We were to use a Christmas sentiment on the front of our card. 

This card was a lot of fun to put together.  The angel die cut is actually metal. Wow ... I LOVE how that looks on here.  Such a cool effect.  I wrinkled and sanded the die cut to give it some texture and age.  The silver brads at the top are actually jingle bell brads!!  They are SO cute!!  And they jingle when the card moves.  Super cute.

Card Recipe -
stamps - Christmas 2011 (Hobby Lobby)
paper - dp (DCWV), white, worn parchment
ink - chocolate, cocoa, fog
accessories - Vagabond, folder, nesties (deckle rectangles large), Elegant Accents Dies, baker's twine, lace ribbon, metal sheet, Sizzix angel die, jingle bell brads, pearls, pop dots, sanding block
