Paper Sweetie's December Release Day

Welcome friends! Today is the day that the Paper Sweeties' are releasing their December line of stamps! Full of wintry, holiday goodness...these stamps are sure to warm the heart on these increasingly cold days of winter! I've gone off in another direction today, one of a masculine nature that normally is way off the beaten path for me, however, I do enjoy the warm simplicity of this card:

The warm, earthy tones of this card are courtesy of Maja Design's Walking in the Forest collection. I sewed the largest two panel perimeter edges and added a twine/jute/button/pearl bow to the smallest panel. The sentiment is one long verse, I divided it in two to make the skewed sentiment. The banner is from Verve, it's called the Pennant Trim die. I added some blue brads to it to tie in the blue color from the paper. 
Check out what inspiration the other Paper Sweeties' DT has in store for you:
