Back to the...

...Christmas cards.

The challenge over at "Winter Wonderland" Christmas challenge blog is 'The Holly & The Ivy'...they want folk to use Holly and/or Ivy as little or as much as you like - I'm sticking with Holly. The second challenge that I'm using this card for is the "Less is More" week 25 'Recipe' challenge...the instruction is to use Button or Ribbon (or plurals there of).
The Holly swag is stamped onto smooth white CS andthen coloured with Copic pens.
The swag is a clear stamp from one of my new sets by B-C-E. The sentiment is one of the Christmas digi ones that I won from Lynne Salmon.
A single piece of ribbon is wrapped around the stamped panel and held securely by the sentiment which is attached using 3D foam.

I did consider using this for the CHNC challenge which asks for at least one reindeer but I thought it would be a bit cheeky as the reindeer on the sentiment are a little on the small side LOL Anyway, I have a reindeer sorted for that - I just need to put together the card.

Have a look at the Winter Wonderland site or hop over to Less is More as I'm sure you'll love all the fab creations that you'll find there......................
