1st Christmas Card for 2013

Hello Blog Friends,

I am here to share my first Christmas card for this year. I am never organised when it comes to Christmas cards. I am always rushing. The person who is still making cards at the last minute will be me! Maybe it will be different this year? ^_^

So here is the card I made this weekend. Starting simple for my 1st Christmas card.
The colour pallet at 10 minute craft dash challenge #28 inspired me to make this card. These colours just reminded me of Christmas.
Colors: Lipstick Red, Turquoise, Olive Green
I've punched out a circle shape from white card and embossed it by using Cuttlebug- Snowflakes embossing folder. I recently bought a big bag of red and green buttons and did think it might come in handy when making Christmas cards. Buttons were stuck around the circle and a turquoise bow attached at the bottom to make a cute wreath. Finally, I curved and stamped my clear sentiment stamp to echo the round shape and applied Stickles glitter glue on the snowflakes. All this took me 8 minuets 50 seconds!  I am well impressed!! ^^ 
Here is a close up look of the wreath.
I am also entering this card to:
When it comes to Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, I am never quite sure about them. I guess I really have to learn to like and get used to the white spaces!!

Hope you all had a very nice weekend!
