A Card for Several Challenges

I'm still making some Christmas cards because I'll be meeting up with some friends on the 9th. I'm thankful for the extra time and happy that it means I'll get to use my brand new Cricut to create with. I got the baby bug as a Christmas present and so far am loving it. I'm mostly a card maker as you know so the baby bug is a good size for me. I cut the triangles with rounded corners from George (my only cart so far but another is on its way). The Cricut Cardz challenge was to make a Christmas card with a banner and I knew that would pair perfectly with ECP Challenge sketch which includes a banner. Finally the the City Crafter blog called for a vintage Christmas card which led me to use Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection which has a great vintage feel. I have a few more cards to share this week and am happy to catch up with some old challenge blogs. Below is a card I made with Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses for no particular challenge. I just wanted to use that cute little deer and I added some ornaments cut with the circle and charm feature of George and my new Cricut.
