'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Is it just me or does time seem to be flying by in the run up to Christmas!  I seem to have had a busy week - appointments, writing letters and filling in forms.  I've just about had time to do this card for the Lili of The Valley Challenge 71 - Sketch by Bev.

I wanted to do a traditional Christmas Card and use this particular stamp which is "Night Before Christmas" by LOTV.  I found the image was a bit squashed using the sketch the normal way, so rotated it which I think looks better.
