Lili's Little Fairies Challenge DT - Classic Christmas


Sketch Saturday (228) - Sketch
ABC Christmas - Twelve Days Of Christmas (Pipers Piping)
Divas By Design (56) - Anything Goes

Time for a new challenge at Lili's Little Fairies and this week the theme is 'Classic Christmas'.  So if you haven't started your Christmas cards already then this is the ideal challenge to get you going.

I'm not too keen on the traditional colours for my Christmas cards but thought this cut-out image cried out to go on a red card teamed with gold.  The paper is a very old one that has been discontinued but I had a scrap of it that fitted the card so used it and edged it with gold peel-off borders.  The gold behind the image has been embossed with musical notes.  A sentiment and some gold candi finishes this quick and easy card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
