Christmas

Hello to you all. oh dear why is it we get so much mess with all the falling leaves?? I wouldn't mind we don't have any trees in our garden they are from neighbours either side of us. Don't you think they would be considerate and offer to clean them up!!!!! lol
Anyway my card share today uses a clarity stamp ,I have silver embossed it and also distressed and glittered the edges. I also embossed the sentiment. The backing paper is Bearly Mine and Pink Petticoat, I then added some silver edged ribbon, lace, gems and a charm. I do hope you like it.

I am entering this into
Little Claires "Christmas"
One Stop Craft "Anything Goes"
Satuday Challenge "Anything Goes With Sparkle!
Sentimental Sundays "Anything Goes with a Sentiment"
Stamptacular Sunday "So Distressing"
The Cutie Pie Challenge "Bingo" I have used top row

What a beautiful Christmas card, Doreen. The embossing is fab! It's ages since I last heat embossed, the result is lovely but I find the process so messy that I avoid it like the plague! LOL!

Loving this card too!! Great mix of patterns and colours. We have parkland to one side of us which the council says belongs to the water board and vice versa so the trees keep getting taller and nothing gets done with them. Consequently like you every year we have a massive ple of leaves to shift. No fun in this wind!! Hugs Mrs A.
