Jingle Belles - Red, White & Jul!

It's getting a leeetle bit harder to work on Christmas projects - it's not that I wasn't inspired by the gorgeous photo prompt up at Jingle Belles this fortnight
 
but that my brain has tried to move on to lovey-dovey Valentines. In fact, the patterned paper that I've used here came from a Valentine's package - and just happened to be a perfect starting point for my card:
Supplies: paper from Fancy Pants; sentiment stamp from PTI; Versamark & white EP; standard and lacy circle Nesties; mat crocheted by me 

You've got until Wednesday (Jan 30) to link up - you know you want to!
xoxo,
Jessi
