The First Day of Christmas.......

I seem to be making all sorts of cards these days. I was inspired to make this one when I saw a challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge - T is for: The Twelve Days of Christmas. I remembered some digital images and papers that I had purchased online last year and the light went off!  The paper designed by Kathy Sue Designs is "12 Bears of Christmas" and is perfect for the challenge.
This card shows The First Day of Christmas theme.  After printing, I cut out the round image and sentiment and placed on red mats all cut with Nesties circle dies. Added some shine and highlights with Clear Star and Glaze Pens. Attached the circles on pattern paper  that I printed and then on to a card base of green card stock. The ornaments on the pattern paper show other days of  the song.  A simple and easy card but it sings the song to a "T".
