City Crafter Challenge - Dye it! (or die it!)

In an attempt to build up my supply of Christmas cards and improve my card making skills, I am looking at more and more card challenges.  This week's City Crafter Challenge had me sorting through my myriad dies trying to find something inspiring.

It was a bit of a challenge not to use any stamps at all.  However, I decided to use these dies from last year's PTI Tinsel and Tags kit along with my new quilted tag die and the word "peace." I also added a snowflake from the quilted winter set.  I went with a monocromatic color scheme, but felt it needed a pop of color.  That's when I decided to add the red ribbon and to trim down that patterned paper and add the pure poppy cardstock as a base.  I threaded a couple of jingle bells through some gray and white baker's twine and tied them around the ribbon.  A few rainstones finished my card front.  (Maybe I'll stamp on the inside!)  Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card.  I hope it leaves you looking forward to the Christmas season!
