SOS185 - Glittery Christmas

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use some kind of specialty paper (glittery, corked, flocked) anything you hoarded  collected and felt sorry to use.
For my card I used a lovely red glittery card stock. To make the lacy pattern, I used one of Martha Stewart anywhere punches I borrowed from a friend.
It looks so pretty that I did not want to cover it up, so I just layered it on white CS and added a white satin ribbon and poinsettia stickers/die cuts from K&Co.

Challenges:
C.R.A.F.T - Christmas
Christmas Cards All Year Round - anything Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - anything Christmas

I cannot believe you have just used a punch on this gorgeous card Alica - mine would be sloping down at the edges for sure!!! So glad you kept the embellishments to the minimum. Thank you so much for entering the Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
