I Believe in Santa Paws

Ta Da!   My first Christmas card of the year.
I don't want to cause panic, 
but you do know there are only 87 days to go, don't you?

My Christmas mojo needed a jump start, so to make it easy I used one of my cute, 
LOTV die-cut images from last year.
I also stuck with my favourite DP. 
The grey isn't your usual Christmas colour, but I like it with the red. 
What do you think?

 I used liquid pearls and stickles glitter on the image, for some added sparkle.
The star charm was tied on with some gorgeous, whispy red twine,
and I found some sequins at the bottom of my 'bits & pieces' box.
