Christmas Love

Good morning - back with another Christmas card. I'm more happy with this one than last nights card so hope you all like it.
I've used traditional Christmas colours which are always lovely. The stamped sentiment is what I believe Christmas should mean. The stamp is from Great Impressions and I used a die from spellbinders which I distressed around the edge. For the berries I use liquid pearls - ruby red and I added red hotfix rhinstones around the edge. The backing papers are some of the oldest I have and were from Trimcraft 6x6 - Victorian in 2008! The flower embellishment is a combination of a punch and flowers from my stash. I love the little reindeer charm and I added some complementary ribbon tied on the right.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
squigglefly-challenge-19-use a sentiment as main focus
