Merry Monday #49 - Country Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  I was aiming for a Country themed Christmas card, but couldn't find the right chequered ribbon, or felt for a heart etc., but I think it will still pass as Country. LOL  I crimped the Very Vanilla mat and the Word Window trim. I used my sewing machine to add some stitching.  Finished off with Bakers Twine from the Twinery, a Button and Pearls.   

Stamps: S/U's Heart of Christmas
Card and Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Festival of Prints DSP Pack
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Finishing Touches: Designer Naturals Button, Twinery Bakers Twine, Pearls
Cool Tools: Crimper, Big Shot, Spellbinders Heart Scalloped and Classic Nestabilities, Provo Craft Houndstooth E/Folder, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Sewing Machine, EK Success Primitive Heart Punch, Word Window Punch, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
Thanks for popping in today.
