OCL Birthday Party Challenge

I made this set of cards this morning to take tomorrow with me to my hair stylist. I won't be in to see her again until after holiday card sending time is in full swing, so I thought I'd surprise her a bit early with these holiday cards. Pink, teal and red - colors selected from the patterned paper I used - Collage Press "Joyride" Peppermint Twist - make for a fun variation on the traditional holiday card. I'm hoping she loves them as much as I do! Inside is simply stamped with a holly image and sentiment and the envelope flap is stamped to coordinate. Layout inspired by a card pine has done recently - thanks pine!
Images and inside sentiment are from OCL sets: Happy Holly-Days and Merry Wishes. Christmas Blessings is from Christmas Expressions, a Mona Lisa Moment set by CHF.
