Celebrate Christmas

Sorry I went MIA this week, life just got super busy again and left me with no stamping time.  On to my card I made this for this weeks sketch challenge for Pile It On.  This card took way longer than it should have I guess I was a little rusty after not stamping for so long.  That fabulous topiary is from Theresa's latest set Very Merry Christmas from Gina K Designs.  This may be my favorite set of hers yet, there are lots a great images. I also have some other wonderful sets from the last release sitting here waiting to be cut and inked.  I also won Melanie's Hip to be Square set and I am working on a card with it, so stay tuned.  Thank you for stopping by.
