Day 3 of my Christmas Countdown :)

Hey everyone! here is a Christmas card with colors I wouldn't usually use but it worked well I thought. I also went with a simple look as opposed to the lots of embellies...don't forget I want it mailable :) This looks blue in the pic but honestly it's like an ocean blue green which was very rich in its color and thought it might work well with the design I wanted.
I've quite the busy day today...still pluggin' along with this awful cold...I haven't slept properly in three days...actually neither has DH :( I'm very surprised he hasn't been Mr. Crabby Pants and kicked me out on the couch with my hacking seriously don't know how I'm even still walking on the lack of rest and sleep...I guess it's better to get it now than on Christmas huh..?
Okay back to the card...the sentiment was punched out once with the Key tag punch and then I punched it out with the 1 inch circle punch. I wanted a straight edge on the top an the bottom to give a hint of the brown showing to enhance the brown ribbon on the card. I used the nesties to emboss the actual image and the blue background. Click to enlarge the pic to see it :) and of course I have to have my bling :)
Hope you all have a great day today...until tomorrow :)
