"Neutral Noel" card

I'm not doing very well at keeping up with making Christmas cards "all through the year" this year, so thought it was time for another.  I'm finding it's little hard to get in the Christmas spirit at this time of year!! :)  But this card came together in no time at all so maybe I'll crank out a couple more like it!
