Merry Christmas To You

This is a very simply just says "Merry Christmas".  That really says it all.  I made this card to accommodate several differnent challenges where I wanted to play along, so I had my work cut out for me.  It's very simple, but I like how it turned out.
I started with a piece of snowflake pattern paper from my super stash (many years old, I'm sure).  I machine stitched the edge to give it some personality.  Next, I die cut two trees from vellum that I outlined in blak ink.  Then, I added lots of sequins to pull in all the colors from the color challenge at one of the challenges I'm entering.  I also stamped the sentiment onto vellum just to keep it simple.

These are all the challenges I'm entering with this card, and I've explained what elements I've included to accommodate each challenge.

DRS Challenge Blog -- Challenge #205 - This is such a beautiful color combination to use, and so unusual for Christmas, which I ahsolutely LOVE!  I used sequins and pattern paper to make it work.
