Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Here is a Clean and Simple (CAS) Christmas card that I have made using some linen effect decoupage I got for Christmas last year from a year.  I have used a free border embossing folder from a magazine to use as a back-drop for the decoupage.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick distress ink.

The card has been simply finished off with some peel-off gems.
