My first christmas card

Well, so much for summer, or the lack of it. I blame my Dad 'cause as soon as his water butts run dry he wants rain - he won't use the hose pipe. I'm sure he keeps doing a rain dance when we're not looking!

I've got my first christmas card of the year to show you today. The decoupage sheet is from the Joanna Sheen & Giordano Christmas Creations CD. If you wanted to buy just one Christmas CD I'd recommend this as it has such fantastic images that would appeal to so many people. Some bits of the decoupage are a little fiddly, but well worth it.
The background paper and sentiment were free with a magazine last year and I don't remember who they're by. The flower was made with petals cut out by hand and a small punched flower and gold gem added to the centre.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Crafter's Companion challenge 'Ho Ho Ho Christmas'
That Craft Place challenge 'It's All Green'
Charisma Cardz challenge 'Anything Goes'

Thanks for dropping by today and for your comments

Fab Christmas card Andrea, you're so right about the Giordano Christmas Creations CD, the only problem is which image to choose.
It's really nice to see some decoupage and yours is lovely.
