Hanging the Greens

Today I am working with a number of beautiful Christmas sets provided to me by Kitchen Sink Stamps for my work as a member of their design team. The focal point of each of today's designs is the small holly sprig from 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe. This set also includes a larger holly sprig with more leaves as well as a branch of mistletoe.  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).
