 Hi all, I made this card using Gecko Galz  Winter Time Collection, I love this image!  I used some flock on the muff and collar and I cut them out and pasted them over also to add more depth.  I used some Stickles on the holly and also around the border of the picture.  The background is a 2 1/2" wide sheer red ribbon with green glitter.  I mounted it onto red card stock to get the really deep red.  I did have a problem taping it down, the glue lines from my glue runner show through a bit and they did not hold that well, I had to use the skinny red 2 side tape to get it to stick.  It was a lot of work but well worth it as I love how it came out!  I used Grandma's House Paper Collection 
for the envelope liner.  I used my  Perfect Layers square to get the nice registration on my image.  Well, thanks for sticking with me through the remodel, it feels so good to make cards again!  I have more I will be sharing later in the week.  Thanks for looking. ~Diane
