Hurrah, an end to the Christmas cards!


I've been putting the glitter away this week and getting back to stocking up on cards for other occasions, hurrah! Here is a quick one I made last night for a colleague at work, last minute card for her mother in law. I'm rather pleased with the flowers which I got from Create and Craft (don't usually do telly shopping, but couldn't resist these). They are plastic and you heat them with a heat gun and they go all curly. The only thing I'm struggling with a bit is moulding them before they go hard again, but not bad for a first attempt?!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - sketch
Patties - Ribbon plus 3 embellishments (paper ribbon plus glitter, gem and ribbon bow)

Off to brave the snow and ice on the way to work again now!

I'm starting to yearn for flowers and spring like colours,funny how I look forward to this season and then feel left behind! The card and colours are lovely - never seen these flowers before, like the curling idea!
