Christmas Card for 2010.  Lots of fun thanks to the Cuttlebug embossing and Cricut for cutting out the shapes of the ornament and circles.  The inside ended up more simple than I had planned but after hand coloring about 60 cards I decided I had better simplify the inside or they would never get mailed.
