Christmas Wish

Back again to share a card I did earlier tonight while the kids were in the craft room drawing pictures, working on homework, and making something for Grandpa.  I decided to follow this weeks sketch over at Club Anya & Friends and I am also using The Greeting Farm challenge of tying something other than ribbon (linen thread).  Now I just need to decide which of the two to enter.  Since Christmas will be here before I know it, I decided to add to my meager stack of Christmas cards.  I took a picture of this card two different ways.  One with a tag, one without.....which way do you like it better?

Here is the sketch that I followed:

This was actually a pretty quick card to put together (especially since I had colored the image the other day) and that is a good thing....sometimes you need a break from those 2+ hour cards.
