Holly Christmas Card

I promised myself I would try and make Christmas cards throughout the year this year, there several christmas card challenges in blogland, so entering the challenges helps to keep me going.  I'm also going to try and keep them a little simpler this year, I sort of carried away into some quite heavy and large cards last year, as I send most of my cards abroad this turns out to be quite costly. This one folds into a DL size, is on a Centura Pearl card, images and papers are from a Joanna Sheen CD, edges are punched with a dotty Martha Stewart punch. 
Challenges:
abc christmas anything christmas
bah-humbug-christmas   holly and/or fairies
aud sentiments   two word sentiment
christmas card challenges
christmas cards all year round  anything goes
crafty hazel nuts christmas challenge. recycle something (ribbon)
dcd christmas club Punch out your sentiment
Winter wonderland christmas  go dotty (dotty punched border)
