Christmas greetings and my favorite Christmas card this year

Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating today!

This card is for my mother and is my favorite Christmas card this year. Obviously, I didn't follow the 'keep it simple' policy I was advocating in earlier Christmas card posts. This one was going in a box with other gifts, so I felt I could dress it up.

This cute Little Winter Bird stamp is a free digital design from Sliekje. It was a  species neutral stamp, but I decided it looked like a robin and colored it accordingly. I used some snow powder on the hat band and pom-pom to give it texture. The Merry Christmas sentiment is a digi-stamp from Cuddly Buddly.
