Christmas Baubles

My 3rd card didn't come into reality until after midnight, but I'm posting it anyway, because I think it turned out very striking, and a good way to start out February, black, red and cream. You will be seeing Christmas cards every month because I'm going to try to be a loyal poster to Bah! Humbug! I'll have my Christmas cards made and be able to concentrate on other fun activities.
Hobby Lobby had this Magic of the Season Paper Pack with stamps to match at Christmas and it really sang my name from the shelf. I hardly ever buy a pack of paper that I like all the patterns, but this pack is different, I didn't find one pattern I didn't like. I know we're supposed to keep up with where and from whom we get our supplies, but this pretty red paper that I punched the bauble out of has been in my stash for quite some time and I don't remember where I got it and it doesn't have a tag on the back.(Sorry)
2 Challenges:
Supplies: Cream Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Hobby Lobby-Magic of the Season Paper Pack, red crinkly unknown, Stamps: See-D's-Christmas Messages#50319, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Stampin Up-ornament punch, Martha Stewart-embossed trefoil heart punch, gold craft cord, ribbon-Hobby Lobby, Sharpie Paint Pen-gold, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
