I'm exhausted because I've put up two Christmas trees yesterday and today. I know it is early but I think I start a little sooner each year. All the decorating is hard work and I want to enjoy it before it is time to take it all down. I will be out of town for Thanksgiving so the two holidays will not be clashing at my house.
I am such a lover of pretty ornaments and have all kinds on my trees. I guess that is why I chose the paper I did for this card.
I have made a very simple card following the sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #23.
I am also entering my card into these challenges:

This card was so easy, just layering one sheet of this pretty, double-sided designer paper and the opposite side for the corner. The paper came with a sheet of die cuts and I used a matching one for the sentiment but also used a punched piece on top of a section of it for the sentiment. I stamped the holly on watercolor paper, colored, cut out a small section of the image, and used stickles on the berries. I sometimes like to use 140 lb. watercolor paper for embellishments because it makes them stiffer, thicker, and a bit bendable.
