A smile is the best Christmas Decoration

Hello Crafters!

Just popping in to share a card I made for the Kraft Journal challenge this week.  The challenge was to make a card using this sketch:
The card was made using Quietfire's gorgeous sentiment A Smile is the best Christmas Decoration stamp:
A Smile is The Best Christmas Decoration - Mounted
The tent fold card base was made from white Kraft paper.  Two patterned papers from My Mind's Eye mini pad All Is Bright were mounted on kraft paper.  The edges were distressed using my newly purchased Zutter.  A piece of lace was placed along the seam and red/white baker's twine wrapped around the assembly.  Next was a piece of vellum dry embossed using a Couture Creations embossing folder.  Kraft paper was die cut using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals.  The stamp was heat embossed in black and die cut using Spellbinders Oval.  A double bow made from seam binding was adhered and a poinsettia was die cut using Marianne Design's poinsettia die.  Of course, Stickles was added.  :)
Hope you enjoyed the card!  
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
