Merry Christmas Birgitta

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I am trying to get organized for Christmas and company coming to visit in a few weeks. I know it sounds funny to get ready so early for company, but I have a very busy week ahead of me with class parties, crafts, etc. I am always at a loss of what to get my in-laws for Christmas, so I am determined to make my hubby participate in this exercise. What do you buy for the people that buy everything they want? It's so hard!

Anyhow, I have a quick card to show you using Santa Birgitta from CC Designs.
This is the front of easel card. (I really need to try another style of card - I am a bit stuck in a rut with card styles.) The paper is from the Wonderful Winter Stack from MME. I used Martha Stewart punches (border & leaf) as well as lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession. The panel behind Birgitta was cut with a Nestability and then embossed with the Snowflake CB folder. I sponged a little Riding Hood Red ink around the edges. I added Stickles to her hat, flowers and to the berries on the sentiment.
Here is the inside of the card. The green panel is for a quick message.
*This was a custom order and is already sold*

Paper - cardstock (SU), Wonderful Winter (MME)
