Greetings to you ...

Hi Everybody,

I will move away from Christmas cards shortly I promise,  and start with spring flowers and summer displays again ... definitely my favourite type of card.

But for now this Christmas flowery card has used some of the beautiful Poinsettias from  Wild Orchid crafts

Into this mix I have added Roses and a little Holly Sprig

The background is created with  Grate Effect   which has been layered over Antique Gold card and then I have added in  Fleur de Elegance  also in gold

The little die cut sentiment is from Craft Stash  and there are lots of different phrases for you to choose

The cheery red ribbon is tied into a single bow with a shiny dazzler in the centre to cover the knot.

Altogether a pretty and traditional type of card and if you swap out the sentiment it could be for any other occasion

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
