Christmas Card

Good Afternoon.  Hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday and the weather where you are is better than here.

Not been in the mood for making cards this weekend.  Don't know why, just feeling a bit flat so thought I would have a try at making this weeks Christmas card and you know what I quite enjoyed it and really like the finished result.


I followed the sketch on Simon Says Stamp and rotated it.
The image is from Bugaboo Dede's Christmas Drink coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment is an old rub on I've had for ages. 
Glitter card is Create and Craft card from Wilkinsons.
Mirror card punched with MS Arched Lattice.
Snowflake brads - Papermania
Snowflake confetti.

Edit - I've cut the little sticky up bits off each end of the arched lattice so now the arches look a lot cleaner.

I am entering it into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug - Here come the girls
ABC Christmas Challenge - Q is for Quote/Sentiment
Winter Wonderland - Trim a Tree (Hope her hat counts lol)
Christmas Cards All Year Round - 4 items from list (mine are stamping, textured card, rub on and metal embellishment).
Passion for Promarkers - No patterned paper

Brilliantly fun card - love the idea of the decorated Christmas tree! Hope you're feeling brighter - doesn't help when it's so wet & downright wintery in August. I've retreated to my craft room with the heating on.
