"Merry Christmas" Card

It's time for another project from Heartfelt Creations!  This time I got tot work with the gorgeous stamps from the "Cardinal Family" collection, got to do lots of coloring on this card, great fun!! I have also been using my Cricut a lot lately, here I used it to cut all the decorative edge squares and the decorative edge label.
