Simply Magical! Merry Christmas in December!

I caught a bug and have been slowly recovering. This is pretty early in the season for me to get sick since I always get sick the 2nd week of December. Hopefully I will luck out and be well the rest of the year!

I don't want to say how long this card took me to make so I will just say I am happy it is complete!  

All papers are from Carta Bella Merry and Bright
Tag is from Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
December is a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder
Corner trim is from Spellbinders Fanciful Holiday
Liquid Pearls, gems
Skittles Slate from DoubleClick
Merry Christmas from Docerela
Jute Evergreen from 3GJ
