Christmas Card Challenge - sentiment only

The challenge at Christmas Card Challenge this time was to use a sentiment only.

Although they say the challenge is optional, I feel I'm not really challenging myself if I do my own thing!  So, here is my take on this challenge:

I have used a background paper from My Minds Eye - Winter Papers.  I have 'wrapped it like a present' with green ribbon from American Crafts.  The sentiment that I have used is one from Cre8tive Hands and is matted with another paper from the My Minds Eye - Winter Papers pack.  The sentiment and matt have been die-cut using a Spellbinders Die - Labels 18.  The sentiment has been coloured with copic makers to tie in with the background paper. 

Whilst I normally 'must have' an image, I quite enjoyed working with just a sentiment this time.  I am please with the effect that I achieved using just a few items. 

I consider that I have kept it simple (not that that was my original intention), so I am also entering this card in the following challenge:
