Merry and Bright

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. 

Here is the card I created for your inspiration:
I've been feeling like I need to get caught up on my Christmas card making, so here is another for my stash.  I'm a little low on my Christmas paper stash right now (Gasp!!  I know!), so as I was looking through my other papers, I came across a pack of old world patterns/colors and knew they would be perfect!  So, my colors are a bit non-traditional, but I think it turned out really pretty!
