Merry & Bright

It's snowing away here as I type. It's beautiful outside but I wouldn't want to drive around right now. We'll be having Thanksgiving dinner tonight with my daughter and new son-in-law. We have dinner with them on Sundays and next week we have other things to do. So we are doing it a but early. The turkey is in the oven and I still need to make the sweet potatoes.
With the snow I was thinking Christmas today. I'm not sure that I like this card but I'm not sure what else to do.

I don't really have a Christmas border punch so I used this French Scroll punch to make a number of border strips out of scraps. I layered those on the card and added the punched star with a Gina K sentiment. I inked the edges of the star and the card and added some gems. Pretty simple. What do you think? What does it need?

I am entering this into these challenges:

I just looked at our weather forecast. We have a winter weather advisory as the snow teams down until mid morning tomorrow. So we;ll see how that goes. It's very early for snow around here. Here's hoping you are safe and warm and crafty today.

I don't think it needs anything Donna, it's fabulous as it is. I think you did a great job with this card, I really like it. The colours are perfect for Christmas and I love the border punch you used. The sentiment you stamped on the little star is wonderful. Well done!

I really like the rows of the punch, and how the other colors pop through from the back on each row. Great card. Oh yuck- we do not have any significant snow on the ground- is it really Winter already? Mmmmm on the Turkey... hope you had a great meal with DIL and her hubby.
