Christmas at Sweet Stampin' February Challenge

It's the second Wednesday of the month and time for our new challenge at
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
where our February theme is
Only Words
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Sweet Pea Stamps

My Craft Room runneth over with more stash that I can possibly expect to use in my life time.  In particular abundance are Christmas stamps but that didn't stop me from borrowing this Inkadinkado "Dear Santa Letter" stamp from best matey, Julie, when she came to play at my house.  As you can see, the image has a quill incorporated into it which I covered up with a 3D version.   I stamped a feather using a Papertrey Ink stamp and die cut it with a Simon Says Stamp feather die and teamed it with a Sizzix quill nib die.
The side sentiment is from Lily of the Valley and my flower is Prima and backed with a Marianne die poinsettia for the leaves.  I love my new Labels 18 Nesties used for framing too.  At last I made a Christmas card I really like the look of and in fact I made several of these.
My fellow CASSettes have lovely cards to share with you and we would be delighted if you would join in our challenge this month.   I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
CraftyHazelNut - Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas; and
Loves Rubber Stamps - Show me some red

Such a beautiful card! The font and the quill go together perfectly and I love the colours in the DP (reminds me a bit of Georgian sitting room colours, but I could have my centuries/decades mixed up!) xx
