House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #29-Comfort and Joy

I don't normally make Christmas cards....especially in March, but I so wanted to use this paper for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #29.

This Basic Grey Wassail paper is some of the prettiest DP I think I have seen-it was wonderful to add to this card.

Again, I am happy to report that I used another stamp that has never seen ink! Ahhh that feels so good!

I think the HMMC sketch speaks for itself...it would be really hard to make an ugly card with this one!
