Presents From Santa

Hello to you all. The other week Joanna Sheen had some Giordano Christmas decoupage sheets on sale and of course I just couldn't resist and this is the first card I've made from the pack. I do love these images as they remind me of the days long ago when I was a little girl and christmas was a magical time. Before you say anything, yes I can just about remember that far back, ha ha. The background papers are from the House Mouse triple cd and my scraps box and the sentiment is from one of the decoupage sheets. I used Tattered Lace christmas florals die for the poinsettia and holly, which I coloured with Promarkers and added Hobby House rhinestones for the berries and flower centres. I love these ponsettias as they're so easy to make and colour. The two lengths of ribbon are from my stash - the cream was from Joanna Sheen and I'm not sure where the red came from.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Ribbons'
Sketch N Stash challenge 'Sketch' (I turned it on it's side)
ABC Christmas challenge 'R is for Recipe - 3 papers, 2 ribbons, 1 image'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Hip to be Square'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Flowers or Trees' (the poinsettias)
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'Make It Christmassy'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you've had a good start to your week
