Growing In Unity - Day 1

I am so excited to be this week's Growing in Unity girl!  I have an excuse to make cards and get inky!  What could be more fun?  I have so many wonderful Unity stamps that it'll be tough figuring out which ones to use, but I'll figure it out somehow ;)   Make sure you comment each day because this generous company, Unity, is giving away to Itty Bitty stamps at the end of the week for one lucky commenter.  The more often you comment, the better your chance of winning.

Here's my card for today.  There's not much stamping, but I wanted to get in the Christmas spirit since it's December now.  I saw this idea on the cover of a card magazine at the grocery store (sorry, I don't remember which one).   I'm not even sure how closely I remembered it, but this is my take on it.
 
The sentiment is from Unity's Christmas Eve Chowder (Jillibean Soup).  The washi tape is from Target.  The white and kraft cardstock are both from Close To My Heart. The ribbon is from my stash.  I hope you enjoy my card.
