Using strips of paper for backgrounds

Good Morning Friends,

I can't believe it! I used 11 Designer paper strips patterns to make this card or 10 and a tag, however you want to look at it. Yes I am still on the Christmas card kick.

About my card-- A2 size

PTI vintage cream card stock all my pattern papers strips  are Carta Bella and the pearl is viva pearl pen, I love these.   My small scallop punch is Fiskar and the larger one is EK success.

Basically my card is just designing it and placeing everything where I thought it was pleasing. I hope you enjoy it.
