Early Christmas Card

Hello and welcome to my Blog

Hi to you all and welcome to my challenge
Weather was far better than i thought it was going to be today so l managed to get some washing on the line only problem with that is you then have to iron it!!

todays challenge l'm going to enter into is 
i first started with White Scalloped card and backed it with Red Crackled Iced card this is gorgeous and can be used as the base for any card as it's quite thick and comes in White, Red, & Green and can be bought from most craft shops or online, i cut out 
4 Embossed squares
(Swiss Dots Embossed Folder)
Plain Green card stock which has been mounted using 3d sticky pads and the image 
(Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!)
from Summertime designs
(Summerdriggs Believe kit) 
this was free and can be downloaded from the link below and to finish i used some peels offs
l enjoyed doing this as Christmas cards are my favourite cards to make and as i have around 70 to make for family & friends thought it would be a great idea to use this in the challenge above
Many thanks for looking hopefully you will like what you see and may i say a big thank you for any comments you may leave.
