Merry and Bright....

Another Christmas card for you today, at this rate I will have my list of handmade cards finished in no time! this one uses my favourite Christmas colours - green, red and kraft.

I have used a mixture of old and new papers on this one, and a couple of snippets too. The new papers are from MME - Lost & Found Christmas (gorgeous traditional colours) and a scrap of Mellissa Frances paper that I have had years. The wreath is made with a stamp from Waltzingmouse Around Christmas time set. It's a single branch that I stamped into a wreath and then added some red pearls for the berries.  I finished off with a lovely strip of Moss Green satin ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop I think this green is the perfect colour for Christmas cards and presents.

Challenges I am entering this card into are;

Pink Ink Sketch challenge - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Let's Celebrate
Simon Says Stamp challenge - dies to Die for (scalloped circle and circle die)
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Jules Crafty Snippets challenge - use up your snippets

thanks so much for visiting my little blog,
