MORE Christmas wishes at Crafting By Designs

~~~ 2nd post of two today ~~~

I am thrilled to be
Guest Designer



I used the Tied Up With String digital stamp set from Beccy's Place to make four cards for this Christmas theme challenge.  It's a fabulous set of stamps that is filled with images and sentiments to mix and match.

Here are the two Merry Christmas cards with bunches of mistletoe.

These cards are 6 1/4" square.

I added sparkle to these mistletoe berries on this first card.

... and I added luscious pearls to these cards with mistletoe berries
