Christmas Card with Hexagons

I love kraft and I love papers with spots, so that was my starting point for this card.
I've used a die to cut out the red and kraft hexagons. I've also used a Memory Box die from the set "Crisp Bows" and "Pine Branches" from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The image is made with a stamp that came free with a magazine, and the sentiment is a part of a stamp set from Kort&Godt.
I've distressed the edges of the spotted paper with walnut stain ink, then I machine stitched. The bear's hat and stocking have got glitter on them, and I've also used some pearls.

This card is for these challenges:
1) LEJ Designs - #28 Use Die Cuts Or Punches
2) Craft Your Passion - Hexagons
3) Cupcake Craft - Get Krafty
4) Whoopsi Daisy - Christmas Cards
5) Dream Valley Challenges - Glitter and Bling
6) Glitter n Sparkle - Glitter/Sparkle
7) Pile It On - Make It Sparkle
8) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

This is just so nice...those hexagons are all the rage here...I so want that die!!! I have it on my Xmas list!!!
Love the 2 little pine branches at the top left corner and the very nice sentiment stamp at the right top.!!!
So lovely!

PS Is that the Creative Memories from years ago or is it a new one? I am trying to leave several manufacturers on my wish list as DH will never think to order ahead and will probably start shopping a couple days before Xas when everything is picked over and sold out. lol
