Today's set is a wonderful set which covers Christmas, Hanukkah and Nirwali.  I went with a traditional Christmas theme for my card, using this beautiful candle and poinsettia image along with the traditional Christmas colours of red and green.  A little gold string was tossed in for some sparkle as well as a few sequins from the new Holiday Sequin Mix.  Let the Christmas card making begin!
