{Holiday Spirit}

This weekend I was able to work on my Christmas card stash, and I'm happy to report that I finished 6 cards. I know, it doesn't seem like much, but my back has been killing me, and I can't sit down and work on cards for more then 10 minutes at a time. 6 cards is a big accomplishment for me! The card I am posting today is a special card that I made for a few weekly challenges. The stamp set featured on my card is "Patterned Pines" from Stampin' Up. The red brocade DSP is from last years SU Holiday Mini. It is so pretty I have a hard time using it! The music note DSP is from an old piano book I picked up at a yard sale a couple of years ago. I just can't see buying music DSP when I have stacks of piano books so this worked out perfectly! I used my SU ribbon scallop punch to accent the piano music. And finally I finished off the card with a Foo-Fa-La button and linen thread bow. I am playing along with the following challenges:
