Christmas #1

My first Christmas card of the year!  Woo-hoo!  I'm late - I usually start in June.  I cased this card from a card I found last year on SCS by BFinlay.  I've waited all this time to try it!  I need to make 10 more and then I'll move on to the next card (I get bored easily).  I may change the ribbon color on the next one to Cherry Cobbler or white.  I used SU Old Olive and Whisper White.  The Dies are Spellbinders Labels Two and Parisian Accents.  The punch for the tree is Martha Stewart (Thank you Terry for finding it for me!) I used a Cuttlebug folder for the background.  The decorations on the tree are Frosted Lace stickles, plus a clear star and red rhinestones.  More to come!
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
