Clean & Simple Christmas


Now that Christmas is fast galloping towards us whether we're ready or not, I decided to try a little experiment with a simpler style of card, as I still have quite a lot to make before C-Day. I'm not too sure about the overall composition I have created, but I'm quite pleased with the flower and think I will try it out with some different layouts.


Recipe:
Sentiment: Penny Black
Paper: Papermania "Silent Night";
Supplies: ribbon and pearl from stash;
Tools: flower created using marianne D Creatable "poinsetta straight" set, cut out of pearlescent burgundy and dark green card, edged with gold Stickles.

Challenges:

Crafty Sentiments #45 - Christmas
My Time to Craft #117 - Vintage
CES #14 - Vintage Christmas
Keep it Simple - Joy
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club #45 - Use a Die Cut
ABC Christmas - Y is for Yuletide (I have used red & green)
Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long #72 - Anything Goes

Hope you're all keeping safe & warm :-)
