With Compliments of the Season

Well hello and welcome!  Today I am sharing my card using the latest sketch at Cardabilities!  This one is super fun as it has a fun banner and lots of elements to it.  I added this one to my stash of Christmas cards that have been sent out to my family and friends. 

I used BasicGrey's Jovial 6x6 pad along with their chip stickers.  Using vintage cream cardstock, I stamped my script background and adhered the block to my kraft card base.  Added some floral paper and a Ripe Avocado border punched with the Upper Crest punch.  Cut a double circle from Pure Poppy cardstock using my circle Nestabilities and adhered that to cream cardstock that was stamped randomly with starbursts from Compliments of the Season set by Waltzingmouse.

I stamped the pennant banner from Lawn Fawn's Bannerific onto cream cardstock, cut them out, stamped stars on them and adhered them to my card with foam, and then twine tied into bows.

I die cut a labels 5 Nestabilities and stamped my sentiment, adhering it with foam tape.  Using some snowflake and star chipboard stickers, adhered those to my sentiment.

I hope you play along with us!  I appreciate you stopping by!
