Appologies for late entry.
I have been chasing my tail around all day.
Things won't get much better this week either.
So much to do and so little time.
Enough of my moaning.
I actually did finish this card in time to post early today
but last night I wasn't entirely happy with it and this morning
I popped another two layers on to it.
Now I like it!
The challenge over at the Christmas card club this time
has been set by Sylvie who wants to see trees somewhere on our cards.
I knew I had this rather lovely card in my stash of used Christmas cards
so dug it out to use .
The original card was quite a big one so I cut out the centre
of the picture using my Xcut Rectangle Parenthesis die.
I came across the die cut fence panel whilst searching
for the snow flake die and thought it made a nice foreground.
Snowflake die by Sizzix 655628 covered with Glamour dust.
SU card stock in grey.
Mirror card and navy pearl effect cardstock added as I thought
the card just lacked that little bit extra otherwise .
Blue dotty ribbon and blue gems from my stash.
Card given a light dusting of glamour dust to finish.
Then I decided to use all the left overs to decorate the inside.
I had a piece of the old Christmas card left over and trimmed it down.
I quite like the like the negative die shape along the edge.
The sentiment was from another card which I had previously cut using
my Xcut Rectangles die.
