Sunday Challenges - Merry Christmas

Hi all,

Yikes! It's been a few weeks since my last post. As "they" say, time does fly.

I have been working on Christmas cards for the last couple weeks and hopefully, I have enough of those. (I haven't actually counted them yet.) I need to get busy on birthday cards, though. Between family and good friends, I have 8 birthdays over the next couple weeks to make cards for. My sister, my niece, my nephew, and three good friends. Well, enough of that. On to today's card.

This one is for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #96 and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge, Act 60. It's a fairly simple card in traditional Christmas colors per this week's Curtain Call color combo.
