Sending Christmas Cheer

This is another Christmas card, I really need to get my act together if I'm going to make enough cards to send to friends and family this year.


I have used another image from the fabulous LOTV Festive Foliage Art Pad and papers from the Carta Bella 'so this is Christmas' collection - quite different from my last CAS Christmas card.

I cut the image out with a Spellbinders die cut circle and mounted it on a scalloped circle, the border has been punched with a Fiskars edge punch and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat mounted on a hand cut banner.  I added some 3D Crystal Laquer to the berries and some pearls from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations November Challenge - Christmas
Polka Doodles Challenge Week 44 - Anything Christmas Goes
Cards and Scrap Challenge 54 - make a Christmas card
CHNC November Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
One Crazy Stamper November Challenge - Christmas
