Winter Gathering

Well I'm beginning to get back into the swing of things and here's another christmas card.

I've used one of the many beautiful images from the Joanna Sheen Giordano Christmas Creations cd and printed it off several times so that I could decoupage it. The lovely soft background paper is a freebie from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs (thank you Donna) and I embossed the white card with the Die'sire Embossalicious 'I believe' folder. The sentiment envelope is made using Marianne Designs Craftables CR1211 with gold peel-offs and the holly (coloured with Promarkers) is from the Tattered Lace 'Christmas Florals' dies. The other dies are both Memory Box, 'Lindeman Snowflake' and 'Snowflake Sprig' and the pearls are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Shabby chic / vintage'
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'Animals'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'Christmas inspiration collage'
ABC Christmas challenge 'W for winter wishes'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Christmas in pink'
Divas By Design challenge 'Something snowy' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for dropping by and if I haven't already caught up with you, then I should be around in the next day or two. Hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a good start to the week.
