Make Merry

When I discovered a package of nice, thick, holly-printed CS at Big Lots, I just knew I had to have it to make this year's cards. It's printed on one side and plain on the other, so it's perfect!

Here's the end result. Designer paper is from a paper pack that contained paper for all seasons, tags are punched using SU's two tag punches, and I used my SU markers to color in the ornaments, with a small brass brad in the centre one. The dots on the holly are stickles ~ I used lace stickles, but would use red next time. Not sure the origin of the ribbon.

I tried to avoid any mention of Christmas specifically, so that this card could go to anyone, no matter which holiday they celebrate. What do you think ~ is it too "Christmas-y," or is if generic enough? I'd love to hear opinions!
