Merry Christmas

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone! 
Well, we are in the middle of a winter storm right now. It has been snowing since yesterday and we are to expect about a foot of snow...whoa, time to fire up the snowmobiles, ha? 

We are hoping it lets up some as we get ready to take a little trip for a fun concert :) Keep your fingers crossed and say some prayers for us! The concert is this evening! 

Okay, so this isn't your traditional type Christmas card but I made this for my boss and his wife who are big Jimmy Buffet fans. We purchased tickets for a Christmas gift for them and thought I would make a card to go with it.  

I am super excited to because I am going to the concert as well! My sister is also a HUGE fan and when she turned 40 we took her to his outdoor concert in Wisc and had a blast!! So, we knew when he was coming to MN we would all be going again.....Fins Up!! 
Here is the card:
It is a rather simple card but I am pleased with how it turned out. I used a Lasting Impressions embossing template along with Lasting Impressions pattern paper and fussy cut around the pieces. I sanded the edges to give it a worn look and to define the pattern. I added a small layer of tan paper along the bottom and tore the edges for a fun look.
I wrapped some polka dot sheer ribbon and tied a fun double bow and included Red Jute String and a bell that was in my stash.
I stamped the fun sentiment with My Craft Spot's Joy Filled Christmas and added a few skittles from me dear friend, Carri.
I included a little pocket for the tickets inside~
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Just B Creative Crazy December Linky Party
2.) Paper Playtime Challenge #24 Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping!
