I Even Love The Box!

This is the card I created for this week's celebration challenge at Mo's Digital Challeges. I am celebrating Christmas with this adorable image called I Even Love The Box.   I used the sketch from Crafty Catz.  The base of my card is red. I cut a piece of hunter green a little smaller than the card base and backed it in white.  I added faux stitching around the hunter green using a white pen.  I added a white satin ribbon down the side.  I cut a rectangle out of red card stock and backed it in white. I added faux stitching around the red. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I cut the image in a circle. I backed it in hunter green and cut around it using scalloped scissors. I then backed it in white and cut around it again.  I stamped the word JOY on white card stock and punched it out using a circle punch. I backed it in hunter green and cut around it.  Then again in white and cut around it using scalloped scissors. I added 2 green and 2 red star buttons.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
