Not Much Time Before Christmas

So, with Christmas closing in on us (especially at the stores), how is your pile of Christmas cards coming along? I just created this card and am well on my way to having all my cards ready to mail out before Thanksgiving (yay me).
The new theme at the Outlawz Greetings challenges will help you on your mission. The theme is to make a Christmas card. Our guest sponsor, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, has a fantastic offering of digital papers, elements and sentiments. You don't have to create a digital card to use them--you can print them out and color, cut and paste, too.
I am learning how to create digital cards in Photoshop, so my card is 100% digital. I got to play with Decosse's lovely papers from the Familiar Refrains collection. I framed each panel with her textured cardstock from the Christmas Grunge paper pack.The bows came from her Mommie Dearest collection, and the green frame around my sentiment is called Holiday Hoopla Square Frame. I used a sentiment from Decosse's Holiday Hoopla Word Art collection.     .
Whether you create with paper and ink, or go the digital path, link up your card with us at the Outlawz Monday Greetings for your chance to win prizes. As an added bonus, Lisa Decosse co-owns the 12 Months of Christmas Link-Up blog, where sharing links to two Christmas cards a month nets you a free digital paper, and if you follow the optional theme, a chance to win sponsor prizes!
Enjoy a merry season of crafting!

Your card is very pretty! I would like to case it. I'm well on the way to having my cards done unless my friends buy me out :)
