An Experiment

I know there are lots of people that don't like to purchase Holiday stamp sets. They don't like to spend the money on stamps that will get used maybe once or twice a year. They are stronger willed than I am.....I love Holiday sets! So I thought I would challenge myself to create a Holiday card without using a Holiday set.
This is a card I made at a demonstrator training function. I didn't design the card, but absolutely love the colors and the design. It uses the Pocket Silhouette stamp set. Then I wondered, just by changing the sentiment and colors, could this be a Christmas card?

Here is the result. The only things I changed were the colors and the sentiment. The sentiment comes from Heard From the Heart, which is not a Holiday set. It just has the one stamp with the Holiday sentiment on it. I really like how it came out. Let me know your thoughts on it. I think a card like this would be great for someone who is going through a tough time at the holidays. It's still festive without being over the top.
