Christmas Hugs

Well, that's another weekend over, they just fly by so quickly.  This is a card that I've made to enter this weeks LOTV Challenge 110 - a sketch by Pops - it's a great sketch with loads of lovely layers.

I used one of the Christmas Girls Die Cut Designs and teamed it up with some NitWit papers.  I made some Poinsettia flowers with the My Craft Studio Embellishment Attic CD, I don't usually buy My Craft Studio CD's because I've been a little disappointed with them in the past, however I have to admit I'm quite pleased with this one.  I didn't have any red ribbon so I coloured some seam binding with a Ruby ProMarker.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below

This is the inside of my card.

Image:  LOTV - Christmas Girls Die Cut
Papers:  NitWit - Simple Joys, HOTP Forever Christmas Cards
Tools:  Spellbinders - Labels Twelve (inside card)
Embellishments:  My Craft Studio Embellishment Attic, seam binding from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV,  Creative Expressions

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