Christmas extravaganza


It's time for the August challenge on Christmas cards all year round and today the theme is: Christmas Extravaganza - make it fussy and fancy, so this is my first card as one of the Design Team. Please go over to CCAYR and see all the fussy and fancy cards made by other members of the team and, hopefully, join in the Christmas extravaganza.

Papers are Teresa Collins 'Christmas home. The black glittered strips, little glittered reindeer and ribbon have been in my Christmas stash for some time. The foiled and glittered panel and the leaves were rescued from one of our Christmas crackers last year.
