CASE-ing Christmas, and Jingle Belles

Good afternoon everyone!  It's Tuesday, but it sure feels like Monday after that long weekend we had here in the USA.  God Bless all those who have served, and those who still serve in our armed forces.  I know I couldn't do what they do!  Thank you!  My Dad served in the Air Force during Vietnam.  I can't imagine what it must have been like for my mother at the time...living with her in-laws, and raising my brother while Dad was gone.  Anyways...
I'm here today to share a card I made yesterday:
This sentiment is from Recollections.  I figured I really needed some stand-alone sentiments for Christmas, so I stocked up this past season.  I spent some time yesterday stamping and embossing this one and another one from Recollections in the many Christmassy embossing powders I have, so that I can throw together some easy cards.  I used Spellbinders Labels Eight to cut it out and mat it, and embossed the edges of the mat to match the image perfectly.  The embossing folder I used on the base is from Darice, and is called Snowflake.  Simple card!
You can also find my card in these challenges:
