Christmas Thank You

This week's challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge is a " Christmas thank you" .    This could be a card or a little thank you gift.    I decides to do a Christmas theme thank you card.  Lots to be thankful for at Christmas time. 

My card is very simple in white with a little gold trim.  I used a Christmas Ornament  die cut along with two Christmas themed embossing folders.  I then added a white ribbon and a couple of pearls and the card was done. 

Thanks for stopping by and join us this week at Holly Jolly.
