The Magic of Christmas

I really am making a start on my Christmas cards now, as usual it's going to be one mad rush to get ready for my Christmas Fair on 1st December - but then it just wouldn't seem right if I was organised!

This is quite a CAS card, all I have used are some Pink Petticoat papers, a punched edge, two die cut trees, a stamped sentiment and a little ice stickles to finish.

I kept the inside of my card quite simple as well - the same patterned papers, a scalloped circle cut from the plain paper and a standard circle die cut in white paper to write on.

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

The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 26 - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge 2 - Anything Goes
Created with Love Challenge 7 - Christmas - Must use a Die Cut
City Crafter Challenge 125 - Monochromatic
Paperminutes Challenge 233 - Combine Old/New (old dies and stamp, new papers)
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge 36 - No Images JUST WORDS
Word Art Wednesday Challenge 44 - Must use encouraging or uplifting sentiment
Charisma Cardz Challenge 35 - Seeing Double (two trees)

Thank you so much for calling today.
