Christmas Time

Hello friends,

A Christmas card to share – my first one this year.  I have the honor to be a guest designer for Let’s Craft and Create Challenges today. Mary asked me to play along with the Christmas/ New Year challenge starting today on the blog. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of  this lovely challenge.

My card is created in traditional Christmas colors of green red and gold. To capture our summer Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere I used some kraft, brown and cream colors as well for a more rustic look. I layered the Christmas tree on music paper and added a bow with berries and little tags. To add a fun and festive feel to the card I used lots of red and gold stars. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

Challenges I entered:

    Amelia, this is fantastic! All those little tags hanging down are my favorite part of the whole card. I tell you, it’s the little things, and that is just so creative. I adore those tiny stars, too. Oh, my, it’s all just so pretty!
