Blessings of the season

My card today features a bleach stamping technique. I tried it on a few different cardstocks but found my best image from Bazzill cardstock. The stamp is by Jest Rite and I die cut it out using a Spellbinders die. Then the pink middle oval was cut out using my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge. Then the final burgundy oval is the Spellbinders next size up scallop oval. I don't have the other size of scallop ovals so I improvised. The patterned paper is an old one from a DCWV Christmas Stack. The felt ribbon is by Oriental Trading Co, pearls by Want 2 Scrap and the die cuts are from a friend of mine. I saw her use them on her card and she was nice enough to punch some out and send them to me. I tell you this hobby generates some of the nicest people. 
Thanks for looking
