Trying a new challenge...

I have been having fun with the sketches lately and found that Simon Says Stamps does one every Saturday...I'm in! 

The white card stock base card was layered with grey card stock and patterned paper as per the sketch.
I found this great piece of red glitter paper and knew it had to be the flag.
 But it also needed to be the verse so I pulled out my Sizzix #660058 and found the "Merry Christmas".
At that point I thought the card was done, but I didn't like the plainness of the flag so back to the die drawer and pulled out my Sizzix #656064, though it doesn't exactly match the leaves in the patterned paper, it does cut that plainness.
