Merry and Bright Christmas card

Hello, friends!

Today I have a super easy card. It is perfect for those of you who are a little behind on making your cards. Cricut.com is selling the files for 99 cents each. There are many of them to choose from, so there is bound to be several that you like. Some have sentiments and some do not, but that is great because it gives you flexibility!  This one is called Holiday card 20.  

 Here is the file I used!
 CCR file: https://www.box.com/s/a41xj6g8yme1p2noioxc
I used Close To My Heart cardstock.
I used the Merry and Bright stamp set from Close To My Heart.

For a little bit extra I added little adhesive backed pearls.
 Don't forget this week's giveaway!

This week's giveaway is a Snow Day cartridge.

What a pretty card. I got a new computer and have not put Cricut craft room back on it. Looks like I am going to have to. I bought the bows last year and I have the presents wrapped but not the bows made. So it is now or it will be too late. TFS
