Not A Christmas Card

Hi my lovelies, I seem to have been making Christmas Cards for ages, so I decided to do something a little different today. Those of you who follow me often will know that today I should have been posting my card for Tilda's Town, but it is with a heavy heart I decided to step down when there was a recent DT call, I will miss all of the girls there, they are so friendly and lovely, and I will see them all around. One of the main reasons I stepped down was the new challenge that I am proud to be part of, Inky Chicks, we start in January, and we have some opening candy, pop over and take a look.

Anywho, back to my card.

I was browsing this morning and I saw this colour theme of brown, green and cream at You, Me and Magnolia and I had to give it a go, and I'm also entering this into 'anything goes' at Tilda's Town, hi girls.

I've coloured Tilda in with my distress markers. The papers are from the Shall We Have Coffee collection by Maja Design, and they're from Live and Love Crafts. The roses are from WOC, I've also used cream chrysanthsivory rolled roses and rose leaves all from The Ribbon Girl.

I've just received a gorgeous parcel of goodies from the Ribbon Girl today and I had to use the new vintage ivory fluted sheer ribbon and also the ivory pearl rose organza

That's it from me for today, I hope you're all well, I was on nights last night and working 9am-9pm tomorrow, they are such long, horrible days.

    Love this card - all the detail - just gorgeous. I joined your Inky Chicks - good luck with that and looking forward to your challenge blog in January. I wanted to put the candy on the sidebar but could not figure out how to do it. But I added your blog spot to my blogs that I follow. Hugs

  20. Last Christmas my best friend gave me a really nice wooden Christmas card. It is color printed to Maple wood veneer and it folds which is super cool, the inside shows the message and the maple wood grain. I found out that a firm out in Colorado called Unique Custom Products made it. I am considering ordering from them this year...check them out if you like wooden items

  21. Just beautiful, i love the stunning flowers and gorgeous rose trim, awesome creation, Thanks so much for joining us at Tildas Town this week
