I bet you are getting tired of seeing Christmas cards when it is 90 F outside and the humidity is at 99.9% these days. Well, I hate to say it but, I have one more Christmas card to share with you before this week is over. I will try to give you a bit of a break after this one.....maybe, lol. This card turned out very well, in my opinion. I was inspired by a photo that I saw today and I even managed to use some stash I have had for a while but had never opened or inked.
Here is tonight's card:

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - #21 Inspirational Photo This photo inspired me in many ways. First, I saw the tree. Then, I noticed the colours in the picture; various shades of green, followed by yellow & white. I know there isn't any red in the pic but I thought my card needed it to make the poinsettias work.
