Christmas Frame - 3 challenges

While rummaging through my Christmas scrapbook drawer this morning, I found this beautiful frame from a Carol Wilson Fine Arts, Inc. scrapbbook kit. I don't scrapbook since I started making cards and thought this would make a pretty Christmas card. I stamped a Christmas tree on a seperate sheet of cardstock and attached with tape to the back side of the frame. I really would like more of these.

I'm entering my cards into these challenges:
Speedy Friends at Mark's Finest Papers blog-Use piercing
CCEE1044-Winter Scene
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge, challenge #3- Make a Christmas card or creation

Stampabilities-Merry Little Christmas
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Deja View 4 Leaf Magic
Ink: Stampin'Up! Always Artichoke
Accessories: Carol Wilson Scrapbook Kit for frame, Darico self-stick gems, Offray ribbon, piercing template from Angel's Landing
