Grand-daughter Christmas

I was asked to make a card for a 16 year old and I toyed with this card for ages.  I have used a red base card and added border embossing folder down the edges.  I printed the image from Debbi Moore Funky Divas CD and layered it onto silver mirror card. I printed the sentiment from Hallmark Studios and layered it onto silver mirror card cut with nesties.  The Holly leaves are punched and embossed with an X-cut Punch.  I have added some peel off baubles and a Dovecraft Glittered Ribbon.  I hope this fits the challenge over at Less is More which is Polka Dots.  I hope my ribbon with the spots on it and the berries on my embossed edges will be seen as Polka Dots.  LOL!!  Thanks for your comments and I think I got carried away and forgot it is meant to be CLEAN & SIMPLE!!!  Sorry about that folks.  LOL!!!

I guess your ribbon has dots on it Maureen... there is quite a lot going on for a Clean and Simple card... but it's cute, I'm sure the granddaughter will be delighted!
Thanks so much
