#the100dayproject : handmade card 38/100-2 : season's greetings
since the stores already have christmas candy out, i suppose it's only fitting that today's card is a holiday card.

the spin on the inspiration wheel landed on monochromatic for the theme of today's card and my secondary wheel landed on the color green. i thought the best option would be to create a holiday [christmas] card in various shades of green.
