Hello Friends!! I hope all is well!!

Today I am popping in to share a card I made for Christmas.  While I am behind on Christmas cards for personal use, I am also trying to find creative ways to make money to help pay all my hospital bills so our family is signed up for 2 craft fairs in October and November.  I hope to sell some cards!  Below is one of the cards I plan to sell.

It is also fits the Anything goes challenge at the ODBD Shining the Light challenge.

For my creation I used the new Our Daily Bread Designs Peaceful Poinsettia dies, Fancy Foliage die, Recipe and tags die, Vintage Flourish Pattern die and the Holly Wreath stamp set.  I also layered my white layers with the Majestic Labels 25 from Spellbinders.
