Christmas is just around the corner

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  Have you realized Christmas is just around the corner?  Yes, my friends, it is almost here...Christmas, my favorite season.  I love celebrating with friends and family, there is nothing like it.  And for today, I have a Christmas card.  I wanted to do something different, so I created a Center Step Card.  I used one of the first stamps I colored about a year ago, it is Unwrapped Tilda and it is one of my favorites Tilda images.  I colored it with Copics.  The papers are from the My Mind's Eye, The merry days of Christmas pad.  The flowers, twine and snowflakes are from my stash.  And here it is:
