Traditional Christmas Colors

Lots to do this time of year including cards to sign & mail.  That meant I didn't make my card for ITP Joy of Cardmaking--Intricate Cards until late Friday night after watching our Ducks win the Pac 12 Championship.
PTI Shape Shifters Oval #3 is intricate & I'd never used it, so that's where I started.  I had red & green scraps for a traditional Christmas card.  The sentiment from PTI Bold Borders Yuletide was brushed with shimmer & covered with Nuvo Glaze.  Thought the card needed something else, but I was too tired to figure it out that night.  Today I decided just a couple IO pine branches die cut from the same strip of green paper would finish it off.  They were brushed with shimmer & the ends tucked into an opening in the frame.  Now it's ready to send.  I'm also entering The Snippets Playground, SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday, DCD & Time Out.
