adventure with "one more"

I'll be having friends here for Card Buffet Thursday and Saturday. I have a fall birthday and a fall thanks or Thanksgiving card, a Thinking of You (I think those can be birthday, get well, or sympathy with appropriate inside sentiments), one holiday (Halloween or Christmas or Thanksgiving) and two Christmas cards (which could be general winter cards if the sentiments are changed).  I wanted just "one more" choice but I couldn't decide if we needed one more birthday or one more Christmas?  The "Just Us Girls" Color Challenge is versatile enough for both, and so is For the Birds, one of the new stamp sets in that big box o' stampin' stuff that I opened last week:
stamp set - For the Birds; ink - Island Indigo; Aquapainter; Stampin' Write markers - Pool Party, Soft Suede; card stock - Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Whisper White; designer series paper - Season of Style; Basic Jewels - rhinestones; Big Shot with Ovals Collection framelits  
 
After it was all glued together, I thought it needed one more "something".  I tried a piece of ribbon, a bow, a button, baker's twine - nothing was working for me.  Then I remembered the challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Bling it up! so I got out the rhinestones - bingo! (I so want to say "bling-go" but I will refrain- hah!)
