Jingle Belles: No time Like the Present(s)

Hello! We may be only just in the first week of January but the belles  over at Jingle Belles are making sure we don't get behind on on our Christmas cards with a great prompt " No Time Like the Present(s)". We are invited to incorporate old giftwrap as a background, accent or motif or use an image of presents for youor card. We even get nearly two full weeks to finish and upload our project! Yup, that will work for me!!!
Here's mine.....

I have this lovely stash of tissue paper I've been saving and I found this beautiful holly leaf pattern and decided it would be better used for my cards! I used my Edgelits label  die and then glued SU glass glitter in Champagne around the edge. A precut holly leaf from Making Memories finishes this up nicely. The sentiment is from Curly Cute. I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the embossed square outline.

So there's my first Christmas card of 2012! yay!!!
Thanks for stopping by.... until next time , happy crafting!
