Holly Blossom & Happy Holly Days Card

I want to introduce you to the newest member of my family. Sat, 12/22 we rescued/adopted from 'DFW Rescue a new leash on life.' a 3 yr old female German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd Mix named Blossom. The rescue place brought her Sat. morn to introduce her to us & to our dog, Daisy Rey (for those that do not know we rescued/adopted Daisy Rey in 2014 at age 7 and she is now 11) from shelter. We renamed Blossom to Holly (for Christmas theme) Blossom (chose this as her middle name). Holly is spayed, chipped & is full grown. This morn I walked them together around neighborhood & to the park.

Thinking of Holly I made this Christmas card after finding  I had a stamp that had sentiment 'Happy Holly Days" to use. Embosssed the front, stamped sentiment on holly & berries pattern paper & added to inside of card.
