merry cactus to you Card

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Christmas Card first time using Hero Arts stamp/die set I bought recently from Simon Says Stamp. I was going to scrap the sentiment layer when I first looked at the sentiment stamping but then thought it looked rough around the edges sort of like a prickly cactus is and that is my story and I'm sticking to it.

Crayola: pencil colors 
Hero Arts: stamp/die Merry Cactus To You
ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
