Neutral Happy Holidays card with Lawn Fawn

Hope you are all enjoying the Holidays! I have finally finished my Christmas shopping today, which I find very exciting, I now plan on avoiding the stores like the plaque until boxing day (my guilty pleasure).
Here to play along with two different challenge blogs today! I usually only play along with one at a time but this card happens to work for both:)

First is the Lawnscaping Merry Christmas challenge, so much beautiful inspiration over there!

 Second is the The Card Concept Silent Night Neutrals challenge. They have a beautiful inspiration photo on their blog to inspire your card design. I loved the neutral colors, they are so warm and liked the tiny star cookies which inspired my stars on my card! My card would fit into the Clean and Layered categorty for this challenge.

I made yet another Holiday card but if the sentiment is changed it could easily work for other occasions. I kept it pretty simple. I started with grey as my card and wanted the top panel to be grey as well but I matted a slightly larger white piece under it so it wouldn't be over whelming with just grey. I embossed the top grey panel through my cuddlebug. I used a small scallop circle die and a smaller regular circle die to make the middle piece. I stamped the circle piece with a Christmas script background stamp just to add some character as its not overly noticeable. The adorable coffee cup I stamped using Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp set , colored it with Copic marker and cut it out. I have a small start punch from Fiskars that I used to punch out the stars with some silver sparkle paper to add some shine with all the neutral colors. The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp set.
