Mistletoe and Holly Christmas Card

Again, Peanut wanted to be the craft room more than she wanted to watch TV. Everyone says she's my kid! It just cracks me up.

I've made a Christmas card for today. I used the angel stamp that came with the Stamping for Christmas set I bought several years ago (and have mentioned multiple times). The paper is from my stash. I tried some new things on this card. I sewed a green line around the cream circle. Turns out sewing wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I also have been admiring these ribbon accents that I've seen, so I tried to replicate it with some cream organdy ribbon. Fun and, also, easier than I expected!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
1. One Stitch at a Time #17 - Celebrations - Christmas is my favorite celebration.
2. ABC Christmas Challenge - M is for Mistletoe with the added challenge of sewing
3. Crafty Creations #72 - It's a Stitch Up!
4. Charisma Cardz #24- All About Bling
5. I Did It Forum - Card Challenge #8 - ribbons and sewing

UPDATE - This card won at I Did It Forum.

Happy Scrapping!
