May your day be Merry & Bright

Good morning!
Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge this week is a sketch - and here is my card. I have had this beautiful Sarah Kay stamp for nearly a year and finally inked it up and got it colored. It was really fun to color!
I had some fun with the inside of this one too. I used the little Holly stamp from my Hero Arts December set and made a border.

Assuming that it is okay to enter more than once (sorry if not), I am also entering this into this week's Raise the Bar Challenge to use new stuff! Never hurts to have a good reason to get that new stash out!
Happy Thursday everyone, have a great day!
Shanna :)
What I used:
stamps: Sarah Kay, Hero Arts December set
papers: CS - Vineyard Berry from CTMH, Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses
Embellishments: sugared brads, misc velvet ribbon, Prima poinsettias
