In typical Kathe style, I was somewhat distracted from my major Christmas-card-making mission by the idea that Just Us Girls' one layer winter theme would work really well with Jingle Belles' thanks theme. I don't usually need winter-theme thank you cards, but my Card Buffet participants might, and this one can be repurposed for Christmas or birthday with a different sentiment:
stamp sets - Festive Flurry, Many Thanks, Warmth & Wonder; ink - Midnight Muse, Rich Razzleberry; Soft Sky; card stock - Soft Sky
Actually, I've already repurposed the design. My first attempt had a badly embossed sentiment so I cut it in half and used the back side of the stamped portion to try again. The stamping wasn't well balanced, so I added a Christmas sentiment (not completely ignoring my mission) as a banner in one corner and mounted the whole thing as a layer on a new base. This version was my third attempt, and now I really like it!
