First Christmas Card

It was my intention to make at least one card every week straight after Christmas but it never happened so I am going to try to use some of the challenges to fit in Christmas Card Making.

A great place to start was the Saturday Sketch as the sketches there are always a joy to work with. Then I saw a lovely Mix and Match challenge at The Shabby Tea Room -you could make you own papers which is something I love doing. Last but not least it is 'anything goes so long as you made it this week' at Come and Get It so here I am with a ,three in one, and a card for Christmas so life can't be bad.

Here are the papers that I designed for the card and some little flowers to match-I had the flower image in its large form on my computer and it was a freebie from a long time ago-the original was red so maybe a pointsetta-I changed the colour to match my card.


This is a freebie digi image that I coloured in PSP and printed onto one of the papers.
