Simple Christmas Card


I've been playing with some simple (for me), flat(ish) Christmas cards that can be popped in the post lately... I need to get ahead this year, I am determined not to be last minute Annie as usual... well my intentions are good, even if they don't come off in reality!

Anyway, continuing with using scraps and papers I have already cut into I made this card

I really like the look of the black and green.  The grosgrain ribbon has been recycled from a towel bale, and the bauble and sentiment stamps were freebies from magazines from last year... so all in all a bargain make (as long as you don't count the cost of the towels!) The bakers twine and pearls are from my stash.

I really like this design, and will be making more using off cuts to send out this year.

Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by
