Now, let me tell you about my creation for today. Ive done this fun Christmas card, in non traditional colors. My card  uses the image JJ calender months - December, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used card Candi with gold mettalic spots, to embellish my card. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. I used blue and white polka dot washi tap across each corner of the card.  Cute, isn't it?!
