Merry Monday #99 - Merry Christmas

Hi there,
Welcome to Merry Monday's Christmas Card Challenge this week.  We are challenging you to use Chocolate Brown, Green, Gold and White or Cream on your card. I started to make this card for last weeks challenge and then realised it fitted this challenge more so I switched it to this week.   I went with a shaped card, stitched the centre panel on my sewing machine and sponged the Very Vanilla edges.  I created the bow with my Bow Easy and added the pine leaves, die cut branches, wood button, tag, gold thread and cord and made the pine cones.  The sentiment was stamped from three different stamp sets. Hope you like it.
