Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  It has been such a fun season sharing all of my Christmas cards.  Today I have another share using the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  I just received this set a few weeks ago and I have had so much fun creating my Christmas cards with it.  We had a color challenge using, Gold, Real Red and Garden Green!  Of course I wanted to make another Christmas card for you, enjoy.
