Christmas Friendship!!!

 
A very happy Monday to everyone!!! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and have been able to have some fun along the way! I have been out only briefly and I have determined that shoppers are crazy!!! hahaha So if you have to be out and about shopping, please be safe and roll with the punches!!
 
Today begins a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and for this fortnight the theme is Friendship Christmas...what could be more fun and appropriate for this time of year???  As always, there is a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant from the Wild Orchid Crafts Shop and we hope you will come over and join with us so we can see your wonderful creations! Please pay attention to the rules on the sidebar...they are very simple actually...No more than two other challenges and use at least one Wild Orchid Crafts product. Please be sure to link your card/project and not your blog and please do not backlink something that you have done before! Can't wait to see you there!!!
 
For my card I used another Whimsy Print from the Christmas Joy Prints Collection and added some Prisma Glitter to the glow around the lamp and Stickles for the holly berries. The sentiment is from the Tis the Season Notables 5 set designed by the  marvelously talented Ann Vento and cut out with a Notables 5 Die. Everything else on the card is from Wild Orchid Crafts: Folded Paper Doily, Mulberry Leaves, Cottage Rose, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Satin Ribbon, and Self Adhesive Rhinestones. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the EP Very Merry Christmas Pad ( I think).
 
 
WINNER
 
Thank you all so very much for all of the sweet and kind comments...and yes, I think I have a MS Punch fetish...hahahah...but as I said, I am NOT buying any more of those things!!! So with that said, Mr Random.org has made his selection of the winner of the MS Holly Leaves PATP Set and the winner is......
 
 
Congratulations, Mary Lou!! Please leave a comment on this posting so that everyone will know that you have claimed your prize and send me your mailing info before Wednesday, December 12 at noon EST so that I can get this thing out of my house...hahahaha
 
 
Thank you all for dropping by today and I hope to see you again real soon. I know this is a very busy time for most everybody this time of year...so enjoy your moments and be safe!! Until we meet again, I send big hugs!!

Your card is so sweet! I love the ribbon tucked around the corners. My mother always put ribbon on presents this way.
The flowers and the little touch of lace on the corners are a lovely way to frame your little lady.
Thanks for sharing! :)
