Merry Christmas w/Stamp Simply

We can cover our heads and pretend like it's not happening so soon, but Christmas is just around the corner.  Ready or it comes.  I'm NOT prepared at all.  But I do have a good start on my Christmas card; and Stamp Simply makes it easy and FUN.  When you shop at Stamp Simply, you will always find the perfect stamps, images, and sentiments for every occasion.
I used basic white Cardstock for this card.  The top piece of white cardstock was run through my BigShot with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder to give it some fabulous texture.  I rubbed on some green ink as well.  The sentiment (Merry Christmas) can be found in the adorable Farmhouse Christmas Stamp Set.  It was stamped onto a banner cut with the Fishtail Banners Dies and was also embossed with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder.
The bird and branches were stamped using the God Will Take Care of You Stamp Set and was then cut using the coordinating God Will Take Care of You Dies.  I also added some berries that were cut using the Tim Holtz Holiday Brushstrokes #2 Thinlits Dies.  I ran some pretty Black & White Gingham Ribbon across my card and tied a bow with it.
A few sequins were the finishing touch to this card.  The pretty stamps from Stamp Simply are always the best part of my cards.  They're just SO lovely, and there are great deals, a wide variety of choices, and great embellishments of every kind.  Don't miss out on ALL that awaits you from Stamp Simply.  Thanks so much for visiting me today.

I'm linking up to these FUN challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog - Simon Says "Freezing Cold Mood Board" - I was inspired by the branch of berries and the pretty bird.  Their beautiful feathers, and God's love, keep them warm all Winter.

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge #704 - Wings and/or Tails - I chose to share a pretty winged BIRD

Can You Handle The Pressure - Challenge Theme: Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: Thanks - I used a Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder.  While I didn't literally use the twist, I think we can all agree that Christmas is a time for giving thanks.
