Mark’s Finest Papers
I chose similar color schemes for my cards but in the second one I chose to focus solely on the sentiment. There are a lot of great sentiments with neat fonts in the sets from Mark's Finest Papers and you don't always have to have an image to highlight it, they can stand on their own. I associate the phrase 'holly jolly Christmas' with jingle bells, so I chose jingle bells to accent the bow. Highlighting the sentiment gives you a great outlet to use some patterned paper too. Thanks so much for looking and good luck on the hop.
