Christmas Card Challenge #43

Good morning! Happy Sunday to you! Here is my card for this week's Christmas Card Challenge #43.

The challenge is to use handmade flowers on your card. I have several different sizes of the rolled rose dies by My Favorite Things, and I don't use them nearly enough. I don't know why because I just love how my felt flower looks on this card!

I used the newly released Gingham Christmas Greetings Ippity set. This card layout is from an older Mojo Monday sketch. I loved it so much, so I saved it to use on future cards, and I thought it would make a nice Christmas card. The patterned papers are from the Echo Park Merry Christmas line. I did lots of sewing and embossing on this card and finished it off with a ribbon treatment, some pearls, and my felt flower. Because I used ribbon and twine on my card, I am entering this into the challenge at the Unity blog - to use ribbon and/or twine!

Be sure you hop over to the challenge blog see the rest of inspiration from the design team! Thanks for stopping by! :)
