Joan's Challenge Nature Christmas

Good Evening Ladies,
I had a fun filled day with dogs of course. It was a puppy reunion up in Michigan. Great food, great dogs, and great friends. You can't ask for more than that. Relaxing at it's finest!
Before I left this morning I created a card for Joan's Challenge Nature Christmas
You can check the challenge out by clicking on this link
The requirements this week are as follows:
Something from nature
Red and Green
Cut out center and stamp a design
Created a Christmas card
Use something you can purchase at
Here is my entry:
 How do I start. Well the cut out was created using the Spellbinder die set Labels Twenty-One. I purchased this set at Joan's. It was cut from the center of a piece of red glitter card stock. I cut a piece of white shimmer cardstock to back my opening. I couldn't help to add the Memory Box Birch Trio #98671 I purchased at Joan's to my background it just worked so well. I popped the red panel up on the white shimmer cardstock. I used liquid pearls I purchased at Joan's for snow in the tree forks and to create falling snow. I stamped a bear from Far North Images that a friend gave me. He was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. He was popped up on the birch trees. To decorate the rest of the card I used the Cheery Lynn B148 Holly Flourish I purchased at Joan's. I cut it twice from green cardstock. I then created three red roses from a Sizzix die.
 An attempt to show the opening popped up.

 Another view to show the liquid pearls in the forks of the trees as snow.
 Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Lori, what a cute card. I love the die you used to cut out your opening and the addition of the birch trees is great. Love those bears too. Great job.
Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
