Country Christmas

First off, its been a week since I posted- it was a very busy week of working, holiday baking, and trying to get the christmas cards done. This is an ultra simple card, but I think it suits my needs perfectly! My husband's aunt lives in the country- Olive, Oklahoma- and they have a cute little house complete with hay and horses and a barn cat- the whole package. Anyway, she gets really excited about putting her pretty garland out on the fence by their road every year at Christmastime and I have been trying to come up with a card that fit her Christmas spirit. This is what I did! There isn;t any ink used- its all embossed with red embossing powder. The stamp is a $1 stamp from Michaels and the paper is old olive and real red (my two favorite colors apparently!)

This may be a simple card but it looks like it took a long time. I like the combo of the swirly pattern and the top note die.
