Good Tidings!

Sorry for the double posting today - but I had to get this card in for the challenge deadlines!  I've had the card in my mind but just couldn't find time to get it made! - and YES - it's a Christmas card -  gotta get these cards done for next year!!
It's a simple design - I cut a piece of patterned paper 4"x4", stamped the sentiment directly on the paper and adhered the die cut tree and horse drawn carriage with foam dots.  Stamps and dies are from In the Meadow from PTI.  Then I just added Winter Blend sequins, layered it to a black panel and then to a Vintage Cream card base.
I'm linking my card to two challenges:

Now I'm off to the sofa to watch the Patriots play football with Kent -  GO PATS!!!
Stamps:  In the Meadow - PTI
Paper:  Vintage Cream, True Black, Stormy Seas - PTI, DP Modern Homemaker - October Afternoon paperpack
Ink:  True Black
Accessories:  Dies - In the Meadow - PTI, foam tape, winter blend sequins - Avery Elle.

I'm a little bit scared of all the Christmas card making going on around Craftyblogland at the moment! But impressed at the same time... This is a charming card - love the checked background and layered dies.

pretty card Julia-I like your interpretation of the inspiration piece-and your Patriots won-our Steelers play tomorrow-who knows our teams could be in a face off next week-but we have to win first (lol)!!
