Merry Christmas MIL

Yesterday I shared the card that I made for my Mum, today I am sharing the card I have made for my Mother in Law - she loves Santa images on cards so I chose this fabulous decoupage image from Debbi Moore's Santa Claus II CD.

I used papers from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Christmas Project Book and the sentiment is from the Ooh La La Creations Shawn Jenkins Collection CD.

I layered everything onto black card stock and then gold Mirri card, Mother in Law likes all things shiny.  I added a bow made with ribbon from my stash and some pearls also from my stash.

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

Deep Ocean Challenge 94 - Christmas is all Around
Not Just Cards Challenge 9 - Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge 187 - Everything Goes
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles Challenge 50 - Christmas Reds and Blues
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Christmas/Winter Holiday
Craft-Dee BowZ December Challenge - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
