Playing with new toys

I think we all love playing with new goodies.  This year, playing with my new toys has become a motivation for me to make Christmas cards.  Today's card made use of two new items - the Yuletide Greetings stamp set from Close to My Heart and the Merry Christmas die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

It is a traditional Christmas card:

I made use of sketch #7

and color combo #19 from 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown:

My card is also entering the following challenges:
1.  Hiding in My Craftroom - Anything Goes / Freestyle
2.  Catered Crop - Sentimental
3.  Christmas card challenge - Something new
4.  613 Avenue - Anything Goes
5.  Challenges for everybody - Anything Goes
6.  Creative Creation - Christmas
7.  Sister Act Card challenge - Anything Goes

Now that my "new toy" bin has two fewer items, but many more to go through. :)  Thanks for stopping by!
