Stampin' Up! Tree Trimmings and I create a Christmas Card

Hi guys, I've almost finished my assignment, just one part to go! :) Yay! So, this afternoon, I made a matching card for the star album I made during the week...
It's a Soft Suede card base layered with the almost retired Newsprint DSP which I sponged with Crumbcake. I layered a piece of scallop border punch in Cherry Cobbler then stamped the three ornaments from Tree Trimmings on a separate piece of Vanilla card. I stamped each of the ornaments in Crumbcake, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler, I then went over them with my Versamarker and clear embossed them for some shininess. I stamped the sentiment, which is from Snow Swirled and used my Modern Label punch. To finish off this card, I used my Early Espresso Marker to draw some strings, and a double border. 
I am entering this into the Stamping 411 Sketch challenge...
Oh, and here is a pic of the card with the matching Star Album!

Thanks for dropping by!
