Christmas Sentiment (DS4J Progressive Challenge)

Hi, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - crafty - thank you for joining me!

Today I have a Christmas card to share.  I like to play along in the Digi Stamps 4 Joy Monthly Christmas Challenge.  It's a progressive challenge, meaning that each month you make a card/creation with their free digi, then you get next month's digi for free.  You can join the progressive challenge at any time - just head over to Digi Stamps 4 Joy to find out all the details.  This month's freebie is a lovely Christmas sentiment set.


I placed it behind a freebie frame from Enchanted Place of Neli (thank you!).  I printed the frame twice so I could fussy-cut just the squirrels and pop them up with foam tape. Then I mounted it on a golden brown cardstock.

I would like to support the following challenges:
