Freshly Made Sketches #11

Hi All,
Well, I have been stealing some time here and there to complete some card challenges. I really love the R&R that stamping gives me! Lately that has really been needed! Anyway onto the challenge. I went on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site and checked out this weeks sketch.

I liked the layout and here is what I came up with:
I used my Oval Die for my Big Shot with the Holly Berry DP and the coordinating Pines and Poinsettias stamp set. I liked having the softer look that the oval die cut and then embossing folder offered. Instead of using an actual horizontal layer I decided to stamp across and really liked the result. I finally topped it off with the Christmas banner and popped it up with a dimensional. Hope you like the result, I really enjoyed the challenge!
