Another Christmas Card

Here is my third card for the design team application at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges.

I just love the rustic look, so when they came out with the wood grain background paper in bulk from the Dakota paper pack, I was in heaven! I adore this paper! But I haven't used the houndstooth pattern on the opposite side of it yet. When I saw the recipe challenge at 52 CCT, to use patterned paper and to decorate the inside of your card, I knew it would be perfect! I could use the pattern paper as my card base, so the pretty houndstooth pattern would show on the inside!

The recipe also calls for glitter, so I put red glitter on my holly berries, and gold glitter on the banner "string" to tie it in with the gold ribbon.
Here is the inside:
I added red glitter to the holly berries on the inside and green to the holly leaves.
Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
B&T's: Dakota
Stamps: Remarkable Wreath, Christmas Love
Ink: Barn Red, Olive
Other: gold ribbon and extra fine glitter (not CTMH)
