Christmas Card Challenge #40 - Anything Goes

Happy Sunday friends!  I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend, if you celebrate that holiday.  I have a card for this week's Christmas Card Anything Goes challenge.  It just has to be Christmas related.
 
I used all dies on this one.  Love my dies!  I just purchased this Memory Box die which says Merry Christmas in Polish.  I have several family members in Poland to whom I send Christmas cards each year.  This will be one of them.  I die cut the message from red cardstock, then backed it with green cardstock.  The wreath was die cut from the same green paper.  I mounted the wreath and added the bow and red stickles for the berries.  The bow, wreath, and words are all shimmery from Wink of Stella.  I added enamel dots and rounded the top corners.
 
I'm also entering this into the Merry Monday challenge.
 
I'm also entering it into the Festive Friday challenge.
 
Stop by the Christmas Card challenge blog to see more inspiration and play along!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

It was so great to see Merry Christmas in Polish. I am Polish my parents were born in Poland, and seeing your beautiful creations then seeing one that really hit home put a smile on my face. Have a Great Day!
