Merry Christmas!

Good morning and welcome to the very first Christmas Card
I made this one sometime ago when I first got this gorgeous
Austrian Background die from Sue Wilson's fabulous range by
Creative Expressions. I matted and layered it with a gorgeous
American Crafts red card, added a matt of Coconut white card that
I had pierced using a piercing ruler.  I then cut some Poinsettia's with a
Spellbinders Poinsettia die, I sat them on some Pine Bough die cuts,
topped each flower with a flat back pearl, I tied a bow with White
Silky Crush ribbon and topped with another small Poinsettia.
I stamped my sentiment onto coconut white card and cut it with a
Spellbinders Lacy Oval Die and tucked it under the spray of flowers
and foliage.  Let me know what you think, I love reading your comments.
I am away to the craft room, to tidy and then crack on with the rest of the
goodness knows how many cards I have yet to make.
