The wreath is colored in with markers and then I did some fussy cutting and I used just a portion of the sentiment stamp.
Did you know the wreath is a symbol of life with the evergreens and the circle shape represents infinity or immortality?
I used the Grand Madison window die to create the outside of the house and the illusion of looking in the window. On the early espresso background, I used the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder.
I added some Stampin-Up red designer paper behind the window for wallpaper and a touch of lace for my curtain. I also cut a window box and added some Stampin-Up holly stickers and stamped my sentiment.
The wreath is hung with some red grosgrain ribbon. That's my card for today.
This is also for the Crazy4Challenges-Christmas carol challenge. Deck the Halls is my song.

what a beautiful window Mary! love the bricked background - the pretty papers and lace - and that wreath is SO pretty! the way the window is framed you can see a cross in the center - most appropriate for Christmas!
