Good Morning Bloggers,

Today I have a card made with the really cute Sugar Nellie stamp Mistletoe.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with promarkers. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Three and inked around edges with the new Seasonal Distress Ink Festive Berries. I mounted this onto a mat cut out using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Squares.

I stamped the greeting from the Creative Expressions Christmas Swirl stamp set in black Archival ink and cut it out using the Spellbinders Double-Ended Tag die. I inked around the edges with the Festive Berries Distress Ink. I added some green bling to each end of the tag.

The patterned paper is Basic Grey from a couple of years ago. I added a thin strip of the patterned paper to a larger red card panel and wrapped some Baker's Twine around it.

The card was assembled as per the The Sweet Stop Sketch this week. I pierced around the edges of the red card and added a couple of pieces of green ribbon in two of the corners.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
The Sweet Stop - SSS133
Allsorts Challenge week 128 - Anything but Square
Make It Monday #61
Charisma Cardz Challenge 44 - Cutesy

Hope you like the card.
