Christmas cards all year round mid-month inspiration

This is my first design card for the mid-month inspiration for the CCAYR November challenge. You can see the lovely designs of the rest of the team here and join in here with your entries.

As the theme is 'no patterned paper' I chose to make a one layer simple design, using beautiful 'doodle frames holiday' stamps by Inkadinkado, inking with versamark and heat embossing with kettle copper powder. I rather like the shape of using a DL card sideways.

This is also for:
