I'm still in the holiday mood creating with my Verve holiday stamps.  If you missed out my other holiday Verve post, click HERE (details on a Verve stamp set up for grabs).  So.....can you handle one more holiday card?  Good.  :)
 
I've used the Poinsettia from Poinsettia Christmas and a sentiment from Christmas in the Air.  I loved this burlap paper from the Joyeux Noel collection by Glitz.....so I went a bit rustic and added buttons stitched with twine as well as a few stitches to ground my sentiment flag.
 
Wonderful
