Brown Paper Packages

I'm playing along with the Merry Monday Challenge today!
I just bought this cute box die from Ali Express (a craft website in China - look for the dealers that don't charge any postage! yes, it's true!)  and knew it would be perfect for this challenge!  Here's my card:
I also had the perfect sentiment from a newly purchased set from Papertrey Ink - Quoted: Favorite Things. (this mini set only costs $5.00!).  I cut a little square of green tissue paper, folded it up a bit and slipped it into the top piece of the box and tied a piece of Peppermint Twine around the bottom section.  I grounded the box on a strip of washi tape and added 3 clear rhinestones to 3 snowflakes on the DP.

And now, I'm singing the song -  are you??!!  The rest of the line is stamped on the inside of my card!

Have you got all your Christmas cards done yet?  Check out Merry Monday!
