One Christmas Card - 2 challenges

Good Cyber Monday to all of you. I hope you took advantage of the great FREE SHIPPING promotion from Stampin'Up! today! If not, there is a little bit of time....
I would like to enter this very simple and fun little card in two challenges. .....

I followed the sketch - quite litterally too - found at SSC166 ALL LINED UP.     
Here's the sketch : 

I have not been entering challenges very much lately (still too difficult to work with DBWS) but I do love the ones I can find at Sunday Stamps and at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

This week at the Watercooler, it's Kath's "All About Christmas" Challenge WWC146.

So my card created with the sketch and the theme of the Watercooler fits both requirements. I am working on a second card with the sketch, with a more liberal interpretation and hopefully (having some "technical" issues) I will complete it before their deadline and enter a second card for their challenge.

As mentioned this is a very CAS card. I dry embossed the front of a thick Whisper White cardstock with the Holly folder. I then used the Stitched Shapes framelits (the smallest square) to cut 2 pieces of Real Red cardstock  and 1 piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and glued directly on the front of the card. Next I adhered 3 circles with the 1" punch (2 Silver 1 red) and then 3 small ornaments punched with the 3/4" punch this time out of the Be Merry DSP that were added with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Santa's Sleigh and is stamped directly on a pice of the same DSP.

I coloured some berries in Real Red just to add some interest to the otherwise very white background.

Hope you like this simple card and that you will visit both the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge blog and the Sunday Stamps one too. For the latter you still have a few days to enter your own card.

So thanks so much for visiting and don't forget to let me know what you think. It is always so nice to read your comments. 

Happy stamping and have a great day!
