Holiday Greetings!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday... sorry for my lack of posts last week. I wasn't feeling so well, so I spent most of my mornings just resting before I had to go teach dance.

I am feeling better this week, thank goodness!

It's really starting to feel chilly here, and that puts me in the mood for some holiday cards!

This card is for the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for this week!

I used my new Delightful Decorations set as the focal point for this card. The designer paper is some that I won in a contest last year. I still have a lot of it left, so I'm trying to use it up! As you know, I am not allowing myself to buy more Christmas paper... haha!

I used the new Ornament punch, available in the Holiday Mini catalog, to punch out the ornaments. They are mounted on some foam layering tape which is non-su. I had to order more dimensionals and they haven't come in yet!

Card Details:
Baja Breeze (retired), Cranberry Crisp (retired), Old Olive (#100702), Very Vanilla (#101650), Figgy Pudding Designer Paper (non-su)

Ink: Cranberry Crisp (retired), Baja Breeze (retired), Old Olive (#102277)

I hope you have a wonderful day!
