Very Merry Wisemen

How are you today?  It seems to be getting busier and more hectic everyday and I always say that once December 1 comes around, you just are silly busy and don't know where the time goes!
What a thrill this was... I applied for a guest designer spot at One Crazy Stamper and couldn't believe my good fortune when I got the news I was December's guest designer.  I shop at Lora's store and you can't beat her customer service plus she's got a great selection of product and great prices.  She always ships orders over $100 free and somehow, I never seem to have a problem making that amount on an order.
This is the first of two cards I've made for the guest designer spot.  This one is for the December challenge which is a Christmas or Winter theme.  I've used Bazill textured cardstock and designer paper is Holly from Bo Bunny's Father Christmas collection.  The image is also from OCS and is Your Next Stamp's Very Merry Wisemen.  This is my first Your Next Stamp but I am going to get some more because they are wildly cute!
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamp's Winter Letter Seals set and the buttons are also Bo Bunny's Father Christmas embellishments.  I also used a little flourish stamp to lightly stamp around the edges of the circle and this just happens to be my new craze... I like the look and will probably do it many more times.  The ribbon is a miscellaneous piece from my stash.
Be sure to zip on over to the One Crazy Stamper blog to see what the design team have come up with - trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Wow, this card is really something! Your coloring is divine, the image is fun & unique and the rich layers of DP & embellishments are just amazing. Makes my cards look simplistic by comparison! LOL. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the world!
