A Rustic Merry Monday # 250

This week's inspiration photo by Deanne is all about a rustic looking Christmas card for the Merry Monday challenge.  
I pulled out some rustic looking papers by Lost & Found: Christmas and a candle stamp by Decora that I colored with copics and added some WOS.
My kraft sheet is embossed with a PTI holly impression plate.
The Joy sentiment is a Poppystamps Die.
 We look forward to seeing your card in the gallery and check out the rest of the design team!
Heart Hugs, friends!
