On Jan 1st the new Jingle Belles challenge (No Time Like The Presents, to use holiday wrapping paper or a tag) was posted, so during my recent crafty weekend I made this:
I followed the current Fusion challenge, but I only used the sketch:

For the rest of my card, I used some borrowed green card stock and paper poinsettias, and broke open and used my new-to-me Clearly Besotted Happy Days set I got because I liked the fonts.

Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: American Crafts white mini brads, Hero Arts Poinsettia Art Flowers, MFT Gumdrop Green card stock, and the following:
