All is Calm... Handmade Christmas Card with MME Merry and Bright!!!!

Hello again friends!!!  Just another quick stop in to share yet another fabulous Christmas Card!!!

Handmade Christmas Card using MME "Merry and Bright" 6x6 Paper Pad!!
This was a card I made for Fia's Anniversary Party Challenge over at Sketches4All.  The challenge was to create a project using the following sketch by Pagemaps:

Since I've been on a roll making sooooo many Christmas cards lately, I decided to just keep it going!!!  I have to admit... This was a tough sketch for a card just because of all the detail... But Lord knows I LOVE to challenge myself and that's exactly what I did!!!
Here's a look:

These are papers from the MME "Merry and Bright" Christmas Paper pad... LOVE IT!!!!
I started with "Kraft-Core" Coordinations cardstock for my base and then began to do a whole lot of fussy cutting!!!!
I fussy cut all the layers using various pattern papers from the paper pad and then inked all the edges for contrast against the background paper.  I then stamped the "woman and the tree" by TPC studios using Blazing Red StazOn ink inside the frame of a pattern paper.  I followed by cutting it out and matting it a few times, inking the edges as I went along!!!  
The "All is Calm" sentiment was also fussy cut from one of the papers and inked, and then added to the front of the card.  I added a bit of sparkling Silver and sparkling Red Christmas twine as well!!!  The bird, "25", and little banner piece were also fussy cut and added, then I finished it with a bit of trim by Recollections.  Hope this inspires you to create something FAB-U-LOUS!!!!

Well gang... Thanks soooo much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
