Tuesday Throwdown #23

Happy Tuesday!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown, our challenge was "sentimentally yours."  I had a bit of a hard time with this challenge because the only sentiment stamps that I have are things like "Happy Birthday" "Happy Holidays" etc.  I don't have any longer phrases.

I'm trying to get as many Christmas cards done as possible, so I made yet another one.  This was a very quick and easy card, as the oval is one big embellishment. 


Details:
Green Holly Paper by DCWV
Oval "tis the season" embellishment by Paper Bliss
Ribbon & Hemp from stash

Challenges:
1. Tuesday Throwdown - sentimentally yours
2. Pile it on - red, green, and white Christmas card with something soft (ribbon)
3. CSAYL - Christmas card w/ metallic element (star)
4. CES - buttons & bows
5. 2 Sisters - anything goes
6. Allsorts - spots & stripes
7. TTT - anything goes
8. Meljen's - anything goes
9. Paper Garden - holiday card
10. Wee Memories - cute holiday
11. The Ribbon Girls - red & green
12. Crafty Pad - christmas
13. Robyn's Fetish - anything goes
14. One Stitch at a time - celebrations
15. Delightful Sketches - it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
16. Stampin royalty - ribbons
17. Crafty Purple Frog - anything goes
