Growing in Unity Day 4 - Christmas Card

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you will enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner.

That also means that Christmas is coming soon!

Today I am sharing this Christmas Card I made using a small background stamp from the Holly Jolly Christmas set.

I stamped the image on the Christmas tree die cut and then decorated the tree with brads and Stickles.

I used a black cardstock to create the chalkboard look. The sentiment for this card comes from Happily Ever After kit.

Please leave a comment on this post. At the end of the week, I will choose one lucky winner that will get 2 Itty Bitty stamps of her/his choice.
Thanks for coming by!
