Merry Monday #280 - Merry Christmas

Hi Friends,
It's Monday and time for a new challenge at Merry Monday.  Kelly is Hostess this week and is challenging us to Use the Inspiration Photo for our Christmas card.  I was inspired by the Chandelier, Greenery, Candles, Window and the Red Baubles.  I die cut the window frame and then sponged around it, I then gold embossed the chandelier and added the stars and drew the strings holding them.  The Candles and pine tree fronds where embossed in gold and then stamped and cut out.  I added the vellum strip with the sentiment and the baubles to finish off my card front.
Stamps: S/U's Merry Patterns, Kaisercraft Le Chateau Collection, Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs
Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Vellum, Red Glimmer Card, Champagne Glimmer Card
Ink: Versamark, Stazon Black, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Our Daily Bread Designs Window Die, My Favourite Things Fishtail Flags Stax Dies, Sizzix Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Die - Stars, Sponge, Misti, Embossing Buddy, Gold E/Powder, Heat Tool, Dble Sided Tape, Foam Tape, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue
