Christmas Card with EP

SO excited to find a Christmas challenge blog!
Thanks to Lauren Bergold for commenting on my blog.
I went to look at her blogs and found the Jingle Belles challenge
for Christmas cards all year long!

My card features Echo Park's Merry Christmas collection.
I cut the tree from Create-a-Critter cartridge at 3 1/2".
I loved this card by Jean Martin and decided to use a chipboard piece behind my tree.
It is popped in front of the Lacey Circle Spellbinders die cut.







The design is inspired by The Craft's Meow July Sketch:
I flipped it a bit and centered the image. 



Supplies:
Papers: Echo Park, baby!
Stamps: Lawn Fawn's "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum"
Inks: Memento brown and Vintage Photo distress
Other: TH tiny attacher, Hemptique string, gems


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles: red OR green, not both!

Thanks for stopping by,
Kelly
