Holiday Card FCCB using charms

Hi everyone! I don't know about you but last month went by so fast and last week was a complete blur for me.  So now we are full on in to Christmas mode and preparation.  So this is the perfect time for the this weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge to make a holiday card.  This week our sponsor is 
I was so lucky to be selected to use some of the Creative Charms product on my project this week.  
I must say I was very impressed with the quality Christmas items they sent me.  I will be using them on my card for today and the card I made for the Thursday Tutorial.  
For todays card I started with the Cuttlebug Embossing folder Plus- Brocade Window.  This is a 5 x 7 embossing folder and I love sanding the embossing.  
I then placed a vintage photo inside from TJ Designs Children's Christmas Collage Pack
I added ribbon from Michaels and tied twine in three places.  
The snowflakes were cut from Art Philosophy and I added Creative Charms that spelled Joy on the left along the ribbon.  I also added Creative Charm gems to the snowflakes.  Aren't they pretty?  I just love them.  The background paper was some vintage look paper I got at LSS for 25 cents.  
Also entering this  in the My Craft Spot   Christmas Through the Window Challenge 
I hope you will join us for the FCCB challenge this week.  This is a great challenge to get those creative juices going if you haven't started your Christmas cards yet.  I will let you in on a secret.  Last year I only made one card so this year I have been making a couple cards each month so I have a great stock pile.  So see you at the challenge and again for the Thursday Tutorial.  Happy craftin!
