Lili of the Valley Challenge - Christmas for Someone Special

Hi guys! I bet you can't guess who I made this card for can you? haha! Yep, my someone special is my sweet hubby Tom! He is the very best hubby in the world!!!!!! This is our theme for this week at the Lili of the Valley Challenge "CHRISTMAS CARD FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL".

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Lili of theValley - Grunge Christmas Postage, Under The Mistletoe, and Christmas Circular Sentiments
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper: Hobby Lobby special haha!
Tools:  MS Pine Branch Punch and my trusty sewing machine
Embellishments:  Poinsettias, Cotton Lace, and Gypsophilia all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added some Twinklets to the snow and the flowers.  I added a red doily to the background that I got from Walmart in the baking section and distressed the edges a bit.  You can see I am getting a lot of use out of the wonderful postage stamps from Lili of the Valley.  They add that little something extra that I LOVE!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today.  I will be back with a card for Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar tomorrow!

Hugs, Dena
