You know how when you start playing with things and you get on a roll? Well that's what happened with this card! It's so easy for me to get distracted by the next challenge on my plate that I often make one thing and that's it.
This is a bit of a continuation of my blog hop card. I've been wanting to use this gorgeous poinsettia die for ages. And I found another die that was very calligraphic and would compliment the lettering.
A fun thing about this card is that although it is a Christmas card, it does not say it directly. (But it could be stamped or diecut on the inside)
