OMG, this is ironic. I JUST got home from meeting up with a group of my card making friends, and one of them had bought a pack of this paper. We were all looking at it and commenting on how much we loved all the designs because they reminded of us the traditional designs from our Childhood Christmases! I came home and looked at the today's hop and saw your card and was blown away by what you created using this paper and that adorable deer stamp from Lil Inker! This is such a great card, and you definitely combined the traditional and the fun. Thanks for the inspiration, I have ordered that paper and now have some good ideas for how to use it when it comes.
