Pines & Poinsettias

This card is a variation from our Up-Upline, Penny Thomas.  I couldn't wait to use this stamp from the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set.  I love using markers to color a stamp.  This card has such a delicate and elegant look, I was afraid to touch it.  Thought it might break. 

This is is the last card from our Christmas Card Workshop.  I haven't chosen a favorite.  I really, really love them all.  Do you have a favorite?
