Decorating for the Holidays, Card Style

Happy Holidays, crafters! I am well on my way toward a massive Christmas card stash, thanks to the 12 Months of Christmas Link-Up blog. Every month you can win awesome digi paper and prizes just by creating and linking up at least two Christmas cards. 
Today I created a square card. BTW, one of the things I like about my new-found experiments with digital card making is that when I print up my cards to send out to family and friends. they have the look of dimension without adding the cost of extra postage to the envelopes! LOL
Here, I used some delicious patterned paper, called "Green Balls" from "It's Ornamental" kit from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, framing it with Emerald-colored paper from Decosse's' set, "Christmas Grunge" textured digital paper. 
Since the sponsor this month at the 12 Months of Christmas blog is Robyn's Fetish, I got to play with this cute digital image. It's called "Putting Up the Tree" and after I colored it up, I framed it with two different colored papers from the Grunge set before popping it onto my background. Decosse's has some awesome Christmas embellishments and papers. I used a mistletoe border for my card, as well as a few snowflake brads and a couple gingham ribbons.
Let's see, this is the 7th month of 2015, so I have a hefty stockpile of cards going. Yep, I will be ready this year to send them out nice and early. How about you--have you started yet? It's a win-win situation if you create a couple cards AND link them up! You will also have your own little stockpile, and you'll be in the running for prizes!
In order to be in the running for prizes from Robyn's Fetish (3 free digis of your choice to a random participant), you must create following the optional theme of "It's Ornamental."
You don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards, earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of 3 digital stamps from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps.
