4 Deco Tree dp
Red RhInestones
Red and Ivory flowers
1 yard of "Seasons GreetIngs" rIbbon

I'll maIl It next Monday after I get the wInners detaIls so It may get to you In tIme for some last mInute cards thIs year or as a head start on next years craftIng!

When you've vIsIted all the blogs go back to start and comment there too. Make sure you pIck up all the clues along the way to the secret HolIday Phrase and emaIl LInnIe at wIth the answer to be In with a chance to wIn the big prIze! (Don't post the answer in the comments, be sure to email it!)
DId you get my letter yet? "I" was tryIng to be obvIous with it!

I chose a few challenges to fit with this card too.

Charisma Cardz had the theme of "Anything Christmas"
Theme Thursday wanted Christmas/Holiday Creations
Sweet Sketch Wednesday was where I chose the sketch
Treehouse had a color combo of Old Olive, Real Red, Black and White
Frosted Designs wanted "Same shape, different size"

I love this lampost and you can find it on Sheet 119. I colored it with Copic's.
I used dp from the Magic of the Season paper pack from Hobby Lobby.
The border punch is Deco Fan from Martha Stewart and I think it's my favorite from the new selection.
The Holly and Berries are from Hobby Lobby and the rhinestones from Michaels $1 spot.

Sorry for the blurry photo, I'll try and do another soon.
Inside is more dp and a trimmed message mat.

I hope it's pointing in your direction as Christmas is on it's way fast!
Now you've seen my card be sure to dash over to Linnie to carry on the Blog Hopping and Letter CollectIng!!!
Have fun and good luck!
