Merry Christmas with Pennant Parade

I made this Christmas card using the Pennant Parade stamp set. I got the colors from the Inkspirations#86 Challenge here. The colors to use are Whisper White, Old Olive, Real Red and Marina Mist. I was also inspired by Cindy Grantham's card here.
My base is Old Olive. I ran some Real Red thru the Scallop Edge Border punch and added some dots with my White Gel pen. I also pierced some holes in the top piece of Real Red. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the trees and base from Pennant Parade and stamped them in Old Olive and Real Red. I stamped the stars in Marina Mist and punched them out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches pack. I popped them up with Stampin' dimensionals. I stamped Merry in Real Red and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. That was layered onto some Real Red punched with the Modern Label punch and trimmed down. Finally, some 1/8 inch Marina Mist taffeta finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Papers: Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive
Inks: Real Red, Old Olive and Marina Mist
Accessories: Itty Bitty Shapes Punches pack, Word Window and Modern Label Punches, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Stampin' dimensionals
