Merry and Bright

Good evening, I hope you're having a good weekend, at least the weather has improved at little here.  This is a card I've made following Dena’s brilliant sketch over at Wild Orchid Crafts.  I'm really making the effort to get some Christmas Cards started so I've used 'Christmas Candle' from Lili of the Valley and teamed it up with some NitWit papers.

I used my Floral Doily dies to cut the circle and border and as I didn't have any ribbon to match I coloured some seam binding with one of my Spectrum Noir pens.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.

Image:  LOTV - Christmas Candle
Papers:  NitWit - Cookin' Cookies
Tools:  Spellbinders - Floral Doily Motifs, Floral Doily Accent, Classic Squares (inside card), Darice Embossing Folder
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts Seam Binding
Sentiment:  Creative Expressions

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

Divas by Design Challenge 9 - Christmas in August

There is a new sketch challenge going on over at the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog why don't you pop over and have a go, you never know you might win a lovely prize.
