Merry Christmas for PP273

Hey everyone!  I hope that you miss me blogging as much as I miss stamping and sharing with you!  With our recent move, I've been missing my stampin' mojo ... could be that my stamp room is out of boxes right now in a tiny room of my in-law's basement.  I am glad I have one, don't take this as being ungrateful! I'm just anxious to get into our new house and get my craft room back! :) 
This week I decided to get a little help from a card challenge to spark my creativity.  I think I have played along with the Paper Players one other time, but I love the challenge of a tic-tac-toe!
I chose to go straight across the bottom using ribbon, a tree and a punch.
Here's what I came up with:
I love the thick baker's twine and love it even more pulled apart.  It gives it a wavy look which I think is too fun.  The punch and tree could count from the Tree punch, but the "star of the card" here is the cut out tree in my opinion.  Might help the fact that it's lifted off the card a little with dimensionals.
I added some red glitter stars on the front and decided to carry one on over to the inside.

This set is a must have!  I have used it in so many projects this holiday season.  Feel free to look them up on my blog under "seasonal snapshot 2015". 
Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to head on over to The Paper Players Blog to check out the rest of the inspiration.
