Perfect Sentiments Challenge 22: Christmas Trimmings

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"...oh wait....I am either 3 months late or really early for the holidays : ) I woke up this morning to some light (and I mean light) dusting of snow on our vehicles and lawn this morning so this weeks challenge fit in perfect. It's Christmas Trimmings challenge week with The Perfect Sentiment!

That's right..your challenge for this week is to create a Christmas card (with a sentiment of Christmas on the front) featuring some form of lace, ribbon, seam binding, twine etc on your card.

Here is my take on this weeks challenge...
To get in the holiday spirit to create this card I used some paper from Coredinations, DCWV & K & Company. 
I tied some Maraschino & Honeydew twine from The Twinery in the fabric poinsettias...love that bakers twine : )  
Stamped a holiday sentiment from my Fiskars clear stamps & wrapped some more of the yummy Honeydew twine around it. 
I had this fab felt red trim in my stash and knew it was perfect for this card...love it!!
I love making the inside just as beautiful as the outside..ties the card together don't ya think?

Now for some amazing inspiration from my fellow DT members:
