I recently spontaneously purchased these cute little Christmas Mini dies by Sizzix/Tim Holtz (Hobby Lobby - on sale - couldn't pass them up!) I had a few minis cut out and laying on my desk waiting for inspiration to hit - a green wreath, a green tree, a stocking. Then I saw the challenge at Inspired By... and inspiration hit! Instead of green, I went for the tans, reds, grays and blacks from their Christmas inspiration photo. I LOVE IT!!

Inspired By: Oh So Merry
For interest, I used pearls for the berries, the ornament hangers are silver foil and there's a twine bow on the candy cane.
The sentiment is from a new-to-me set from The Stamp Market. It's Merry and Magical. I love the emphasis on "magical" in most of the sentiments, but for this card, it was this smaller sentiment tucked into a corner that seemed just right! I tend to obsess over sentiments - the right saying, the right size, the right font - but this sentiment took no time to decide on.
Thank you to Inspired By for the inspiration!
