Christmas Card Challenges #6

Hey Everyone!  Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card!
I am so excited to be designing alongside so many fantastic inspirational women at Christmas Card Challenges.  This weeks challenge was a very difficult one for me because I didn't own any stamps or have die cuts of anything that I would have been able to use for the challenge.  The design teams cards are so amazing that they really had me thinking and kept challenging.  I was totally stumped, until I started looking into digital stamps.  Its something I haven't used in a very long time, and maybe only used once or twice before previously, but I was able to find something that would work perfectly for this challenge.

Here's the challenge this week over at Christmas Card Challenges...

Here's the front of the card...

Here's the side of the card...
