25 Days of Christmas Day 1: Ornaments and Decorations

Hi everyone!
Today starts the 3rd Annual 25 Days Christmas and Year 'Round Crafting Showcase over at My Paper Crafting. I am so very proud to be on the Cricut designer team and to be able to help provide inspiration in this fun event. We have many designers designing for this showcase in the areas of Cricut, SVG, Digi's, Calendar Pages, and Vintage Graphics. There will be lots of inspiration, Daily freebies, and weekly prizes!! Join in on the fun!!
So today for Day 1, the challenge is to make a creation with the theme: Ornaments and Decorations.

Here is what I came up with:
This is your typical A2 card size--4 1/4" X 5 1/2" I used red card stock for card base and then matted this pretty ornament paper on top and that is 4"X 5 1/4". Then I cut this cute ornament from Create a Critter 2 cartridge and added some string and a bow so it looks like it's hanging along with the rest of the ornaments on the paper. Then I stamped the sentiment "Merriest Wishes!" in the bottom corner. 

And voila!! Cute card to send out for Christmas!!

Make sure you come over to My Paper Crafting and play along with us!!
