Most years I try not to celebrate Christmas until after Thanksgiving, which does mean running around crazy trying to get everything done in a few weeks...but I really love Thanksgiving!  It just might be my favorite Holiday.  But while looking for card supplies for the next two challenges, I was drawn to this Christmas Paper. Yes, it is retired from last year, but I still love it and I bought a lot of it last year, so I will be using it on some of my holiday projects.

To make this card I combined this weeks Mojo Monday with the challenge at The Paper Players.  The Paper Players challenge was a bit tricky for me because I don't normally use more than one designer series paper on a card, but using the Mojo sketch I think it turned out really cute.
