CAS Christmas {PPA106} - "Dress for Success"

A quick post for the Pals Paper Arts "Dress for Success" challenge {#106}. We were to use 1 piece of DSP, 1 punch and 1 sentiment. I used the new stamp set "Christmas Lodge" from the Holiday Mini for my card, and here it is.
The rules for this challenge were so super simple my card will need little explanation.
I started with a cherry cobbler card base and added some pine tree DSP from my stash.
I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Lodge on a whisper white scallop circle and distressed it with pear pizzazz and crumb cake. I colored the birds with a blender pen using a cherry cobbler marker. 
Before I mounted the focal point I took a scrap piece of 1 1/4" inch striped ribbon and frayed the edges; folded over the top: then glued it to the front.  I used the trimmed piece of ribbon to thread through the button, then used a glue dot to add to the scallop circle. I popped up the sentiment piece with dimensionals. 
 I finished the inside with two more stamps from Christmas Lodge, distressed the edges and glued to the card.

 Please leave a comment with your thoughts; I hope you will stop by again!"

Love your card Diane. You did a fabulous card with the Christmas Lodge and it is certainly dressed for success. I am on the fence about this set but my resistance is crumbling. Have a great day. Hugs Karen
