Glory of Christmas challenge 42: under the mistletoe

It's time for challenge 42 on the Glory of Christmas and the theme for this fortnight is 'under the mistletoe'. Please click on the challenge link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries for the challenge.

For my CAS one layer label shaped card I've used CAS-ual Fridays stamps from their Merrykiss-mas set, inking the stamps with Adirondack earthtones meadow dye ink. I bent the sentiment and added some red gems for the holly berries. The card still looked a bit too bare so I decided to add some quick stitch doodling around the edge - quite slapdash because I can't do it neatly!

Oh by gosh by golly it's time for mistletoe and holly

(As ever, difficult to get a photo of a white card)
