Peace on Earth Card-Idea 1

It's that time of year  for me to get my Christmas Card Ideas together.  I've been playing around with some new Stampin' Up sets and this is one of the cards I've come up with.  My First card I make is always my Sample card to use as a guide for measuring and keep in a file If I like it. And it's funny how we stampers all go thru the process of taping down and then taking stuff back off until I think I'm done with it. I know less is more and I have a problem stopping. Please tell me what you think?.............Don't be bashful, I love comments it helps create. So here is a little description of what I did....

First I punched out the hole for the sentiment with the large curly punch but you don't have to. I might change it up. Then I punched 4 Christmas Balls from Tags for Christmas  scored in middle and used a Quickie Glue Pen and Glittered each one, then used my Tom bow tape and attached them together to make it 3-D and attached it to the Very Vanilla Panel. And stamped the holly leaves from Bells and Boughs with Stazon Ink Black and colored in with markers.

I popped the Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla panel at the bottom and punched out a separate piece from the curly punch and adhered a very vanilla oval for the sentiment.
I used my white gen pen for the inside of the poinsettia flowers.  You know while typing I might go back and stamp another one and pop that up to give the holly dimension, huh.....a thought.

I have alot of Always Artichoke and I wanted to use some up so this is what I did. Hope you like. Back to the drawing board for me.
