It is the one from Just Add Ink. She did a lovely Christmas Card, and I decided to do a non Christmas for a change. So this is the card that came from that challenge.

Greeting card kid

This is another christmas card done, believe it or else yeah I'm still making them. I have made over 110 this year, but I had one customer who wanted 50, then I had a craft sale and sold out other than about a dozen beaded ones, which my husband decided he needed. He's asked me to make one more, and then I need a few for people that he didn't think to send to. So I've got about 6 or eight more to do, I'm hoping to get them done today or tomorrow. Anyway this card is done for the Pals Paper Arts challenge, which is for a clean and simple layout with lace. Thanks for looking.
