I started this card by matting and layering my base card with some gold pearl cardstock and another of the gorgeous (Simply Joys) digi papers from Nitwit Collections. I am so in love with all these gorgeous papers I find I am always using them. Why not pop on over and see for yourself and fall in love too. Back to my card - next I punched a couple of lace borders, added some more gols card and topped it with some flowers with card candi in the centres. For my image I have combined an image from the sheet below and one that was a freebie some time ago and coloured them with promarkers. Finally a stamped sentiment finishes the card nicely. I think it looks like they might be going off to find Santa, what do you think? Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
