Joy To The World

Second post for today.
I am one of those who waits til after Thanksgiving Day before I get into Christmas decorating. In fact, I won't do anything until December 1.  I am going to be busy and away from my craft room quite a bit these next two weeks so I won't even be able to think Christmas until then.  But I did make a Christmas card today.
I don't think you can tell from the pic, but I cut out a frame from the patterned paper with the help of the Cuttlebug and a rectangle die and placed it over the tree panel rather than putting the image panel on top the patterned paper.  The tree stamp is Our Daily Bread Design.  The poinsettia in the left corner is a digital image by Doodle Pantry. 
I love the card base color.  It is GKD Lipstick Red.
I used a few gems and some Stickles. 

Thanks for looking and for taking the time to comment.
