Bauble Trio Merry Christmas - WMSC22

This is the card I've made for the Waltzingmouse WMSC22 sketch challenge.  Here's the sketch:

As you can see I've been very literal and kept things very simple!  I thought of the bauble from Sewing Box Christmas as soon as I saw the sketch.  I dug out some well loved old Basic Grey Fruitcake and Figgy Pudding papers for my paper piecing.  I sponged the edges of the card with Antique Linen distress ink.  The sentiment stamp is on one line but I used a dewdrop pad and was easily able to ink the words separately to get the words on two lines inside my middle bauble. I found the green cord after rootling in my stash and thought it would be perfect as a line for my baubles.   

After finishing the card front I set to work on the inside and the envelope flap.
