 For this card I used 4 different Ephemera sets from Gecko Galz.  The Carolers with the sentiment are from the  Christmas Chic collection,  the music sheet tucked behind it is from the Alter Me Collection,   all the papers except the navy blue border sheets are from Grandma's House Paper Collection.  I love how the red and pink are the exactly right shades to be used together, that is what I really loved about the coordinating set, I never would attempt to mix the 2 colors together on my own.   The button is from Gecko Galz Happy Holidays Jewel Collection ,
I made it with the I Top Brad maker and I mounted it onto a lace flower from Pizzazz Aplenty.  
 I used my Perfect Layers square and rulers to get the nice navy borders.  
I think this will be it for a while on Christmas cards, I will switch back again after I make some Halloween cards.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  32. Hi Diane,
    Thank you for stopping by to see my withes brew hat and your kind comment. I am not a huge Halloween decorator, more of a harvest style, but I did have fun doing that hat since I had the elements to throw together. Sometimes we have to create something a bit different then our norm.
    Hope you are enjoying nice Fall Days up there in my ole stompin grounds.
    We still have the AC on. Can you believe it? Cool nights and warm days. Oh well, it's Texas.

    Love viewing your gorgeous card again. I bet you are busy creating.
    Have fun and a great week.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie
