Simple Merry Christmas

Between my quest for simple, elegant Christmas cards for this year & a challenge I saw yesterday for a simple one-layer card, I dug through my stash and came up with this one. Sadly, it's too late for the challenge, but I do like its simple elegance. I've had this stamp since 2005 when I took several DeNami classes @ a local LSS and bought most of their Christmas stamps. Sorry to say that I've not used several . . . yet! :~) The gold/deckle-edged cards & matching gold-lined envelopes have been in my stash for several years also! I merely inked the stamp in two colors, added green Spica to the leaves & went over the phrase in red Spica. Though not discernible in the photo, in real life, it's so pretty! Simple & easy, yet elegant -- exactly what a Christmas card should be, I think!!! I'm sending a special "thank you" to Gwen too for recommending the Spica Pens -- they're AWESOME!!! ;-)
Stamp: DeNami Design
Ink: PTI's Ripe Avacado & Pure Poppy
Tools: Spica Green & Red Glitter Pens
