A one-layer card....WHAT???!!!!

LOL!  I don't know if I've ever made a card that is one layer only...if not, here's to this being the first!  Have a look:
Isn't this little guy just so cute??  He is from the Whimsie Doodles company, and can be found in their Christmas Greetings set here.  Melyssa Connolly draws the cutest characters!  I colored him up simply, and added Ice Stickles to the ribbon and bow of the gift.  Although I had originally planned just to have this digi on the card, I decided to add a sentiment in the lower right corner as well.  Just looks better to me!  :)
