Seasons Greetings ~ "always playing with paper"

I have been battling a nasty cold for over a week that I caught from our grand daughter Gracie,   I can finally say I am feeling so much better but now sadly Hubby has it. time for me to make some homemade Chicken soup so he can get better fast.. Now on to my Card.

1 -  Red & White Glitter Card Stock

2 - Lacey Circles,  by Spellbinders NESTABILITIES
3 - Red and white polka dot craft papers~ from my stash

4 - small Pop Dots

5 - clear beads
6 - double faced tape ~  by Scotch
7  - Hot glue gun

8 -Red sheer ribbon
9 -  Embroidery thread Red and Green

10 -Snowflakes using my Martha Stewart Craft Punch himalayan snowflake and alpine snowflake
11- Stickles Christmas Red & Star Dust                  
12 - one little candy cane and added a little bow to it


I chose my colors  for this project, I took my card stock and cut each piece to
size.  6" x 4 1/2 " then added my red,white polka dot printed paper on to the Red then added my Seasons Greeting ornament  some sheer  ribbon then added my snowflakes  using my MS punch adding some gems to the flake and on the seasons greetings Ornament, the last thing I did was I added a cute little Candy cane and put a little white shimmering bow and added some Red Stickles to it . alwaysplayingwithpaper
