Cards for Men #24

Well the time is upon us for me to procrastinate no longer and make a concerted attempt to get my Christmas cards done!!

I have so many Christmas supplies I was determined not to buy any more this year but succumbed in a small way when I saw the extremely cute pack from Papermania from the Honey & Hugs range 'Festive Frolics'. There were 6 sheets of paper, some chipboard, die cuts, epoxy stickers and I also bought a twinpack of cardstock stickers as I loved the cute little owls and wanted to make a card for Paul from this.

The colours are bright, just how I like them :) I started with an 8" square scalloped edge blank and alternated the red and green card candy around the edges. The larger panel of paper is edged in ink to provide a contrast on the blank card. The stripey paper was edged with one of my new Martha Stewart punches. The red strip is part of a cardstock sticker which is glittered and glazed. The cute likkle owls on the branch is all one sticker and it is just so glittery, I luvs it soooo much...... The sentiments are both from the cardstock stickers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
