Christmas All Year Long - #4; Cute Card Thursday #57; Stamp With Fun #3

I think this is called killing 3 birds with 1 stone.

This is my April installment for my Christmas Cards All Year Long. As it would happen, it also fits the challenge for Cute Card Thursday #57 - Getting Edgy (to tear, distress, sew or sand the edges of your card; and fits the challenge for Stamp With Fun #3 which is to use the following sketch...

and here is the very versatile card...
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with Bell
Ink: Memento, Copics, Gold Paint Pen
Paper: DCWV
Embellishments: Prima’s, Martha Stewart Branch Punch and scallop border punch, charm from stash, Top Note die cut for inside of card.
Other notes: Distress tool to distress paper edges.

I remembered to decorate the inside of the card. I love how this really completes a card.
Have a wonderful weekend!
