Christmas Greenery #2

Good morning everyone!

This my second Christmas card for the Green Challenge at CCAYR, you still have the rest of the month to participate. And there has been a change is challenge rules; you don't have to make 5 cards anymore to qualify for the prize, one will do just fine! :) Good news, right? I think I will keep it up though, so there will be a lovely big pile of Christmas cards ready to send come December. maybe you'd like to do that too, so a green challenge might be just the ticket to start you off :)

I love combining red and green on Christmas cards, it's a classic combination for a reason, right?
