Little Boxes

Happy New Year everyone...and what better way to start the New Year, than with a Christmas card?! I've used another new stamp...'Presents' background stamp by Personal Impressions...but as it took so long to colour, I thought I'd make it the main feature! The sentiment stamp is from the 'Holly-Jolly' set by Penny Black.

I stamped the image a second time, and cut out and popped up on 3D foam some of the presents in the foreground:

Challenges for this card:
