Holly Jolly Christmas ~ Raspberry Suite Take 2

Good morning!! Today's card is the Christmas card I said I had to make with Dawn's colours this week. I don't usually submit 2 cards, but I just had to challenge myself and make a Christmas card. I also experimented with some new Martha Stewart pink tinsel glitter. Notice it's not on the card! LOL Let's just say it's in the studio instead...the carpet, the desk...etc...you get the idea!! I wanted so much to use my new ornament stamps and punch. I love the bling! It was so fun to add it:) Oh, and the thread is Raspberry Fizz!! (or at least the closest I could come to matching it!) Okay, no more cards for Dawn's challenge this week!! LOL Have a wonderful Monday...Dancing with the Stars finale is tonight!! EEK!

What's in it?
Stamps: SU Delightful Decorations, PTI Holiday Button Bits
Ink: PTI aquamist, raspberry fizz; SU kiwi kiss, perfect plum
Paper: PTI vintage cream, lavender mist; SU choc chip
Accessories: stitching, gemstones, twine, cuttlebug ef, fiskars apron lace punch, SU ornament punch

I have toyed with getting that punch and set forever and may just have to cave in and get it. Cute card and I love the colour of the zigzagging as well as all the bling :D Was sorry to see Joanna voted out last week as she can give Mia a run for her money. Will be interesting to see who wins!
