The first this year

Christmas card, that is!

Well, good afternoon, peeps and I hope that the week's being good to you so far. I thought I'd share this card with you - I do love this tri-fold shutter design and it's perfect for showing off DPs. These are from the Papermania 'Classic Christmas' collection and I chose them because it just felt right to make a card in traditional Christmas colours.

Tilda is coloured with Copics and if I ever find the piece of paper I noted down the numbers on, I'll edit this post later to tell you! I cut the ovals from Nesties and all the ditressing is with Forest Moss Distress Ink. The pointsettia is from Prima and the rose buds from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I may well make another of these cards, it was great fun and I hope you like it. I'm entering it in the following challenges:

Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Ribbons and bows
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Christmas Colours
Christmas Card Challenges - Distressed Cards

Sorry about the photography, which looks a little blurry!

See you again soon!
