Good Friday morning all!  One of my favourite days of the week!!!!  We have been having Spring-like temperatures and the snow is finally melting.  A far cry from the -50s C we had a few weeks ago.

I am sharing another Christmas card today, I am bound and determined to make many through out the year this time around :)



I used some of my favourite embellishments:  mulberry flowers and jingle bells!



Card Ingredients:
Stamps: The Graphics Fairy
Inks:  Craftsmart Gold and Chocolate Brown, Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap
Papers:  Pink Paislee Snow Village, Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas
Cardstock: Recollection
Bits/Bobs: Celebrate It jingle bells, Wild Orchid flowers, cheese cloth
Tools:  Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Making Memories edge distresser


I created this card for the following challenges:  Merry Monday - brown, cream/white, gold and green, Jingle Belles - holiday foliage, Sparkles Christmas - 3 or more embellishments.



Enjoy your weekend and I will be back on Monday with a secret to share ;)  Cheers!!
