New Christmas Card

Happy birthday to me! Haha. I'm 33 today, in case you wanted to know. My kids are out of school due to the sub-zero temperatures. That means I have to take them all to my Doctor's apt. with me this afternoon. Yay. It's been nice having them home on my birthday though.

I got a little bit of time today to make this card. I used a new stamp set for the "use something new" challenge at Heart2Heart. It is Illuminate, the Nov. stamp of the month. I had not opened it yet. The sketch is from Atlantic Hearts, and I used baker's twine for the Merry Monday "ribbon/twine" challenge.

 
 Here's the inside:

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Cranberry
Stamps: Illuminate, Christmas Love, Mary and Babe
Ink: Cranberry, Black, Honey
Other: Cranberry Baker's Twine, Almond Glitz Glitter Gel
