Season's Greetings... a few months early

Hi, everyone.

Today's card is for this week's OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge to use die(s) and/or punch(es) in a card for our troops. Perfect timing since I've been chomping at the bit to try out a new Stampin' Up! punch. :)

Doodlebug north pole; black cardstock
??? sentiment -- from the $ bin???, heat embossed in Distress Ink black soot
Stampin' Up! hexagon punch; Mark Richards rhinestones
OWH fundraiser ribbon; Zots 3D glue dots

Picked up a couple of packs of this paper last year and really, really like it. And, when my OWH ribbon package came this week, I never dreamed I would use this gray ribbon on a holiday card. But, it's such a perfect fit for this paper. Thanks, OWH!

Parting Thoughts

Have a great rest of the week! Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!

Such a lovely card, those hexis are just the new creative touch! The gray ribbon coordinates so well with the background dp. TFS!

Really like the colorful hexagons on the card. Great choice of DP for the card backrounds. Have a great day.

I like that this is not a 'traditional' holiday card! Very sophisticated! Love your use of the hexagons and the ribbon is perfect!
