Christmas Wishes

Happy Friday everyone! Wow, I can't believe it is Friday already! Christmas will be here before I know it and I still have lots of shopping and card-making to finish! I need to get busy! I did manage to get one card done today :)
For this card I used the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge to cut the wreath. I cut it twice so I could attach each layer with foam tape for dimension. I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the window and plastic from a Cricut clamshell to cover the opening. The music paper and tree paper on the inside of the card are from The Paper Studio, the rest is from My Mind's Eye. I went a little bling crazy and attached red gems with my iRock, used crystals for the birds eyes and pearls for the ribbon. The tag is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die and I inked it with Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress Ink. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut Challenge #62 - Candles, Wreaths, Pine Cones
  2. My Craft Spot Challenge #35 - Christmas Through the Window
  3. Little Srap Pieces - Winter, Holiday
  4. Hiding In My Craft Room #22 - Mix It Up! Holiday
  5. Creative Cutter Room - Design Time Thursday! Animal Time
  6. Craft Your Passion #86 - Tis The Season
  7. A Muse Studio Challenge Blog - Winter Holiday Card
  8. Whimsical Designs Challenge - Layer It
