Bringing home the holly


This is my second card for the mid-month inspiration for Christmas cards all year round challenge for October 'getting ready for Christmas'. Please click on the link and see the lovely festive crafting of the rest of the team and, hopefully, join in the challenge - you still have plenty of time.

And don't forget:

'This can be anything associated with the preparations for Christmas - presents, baking, Christmas lights, trimming the tree etc.

For something a little different this month we will have two challenges running at the same time.
The first challenge will be a single card challenge and we will be drawing a random prize winner and our top three from here.

The second challenge will be for those who make a set of five cards.


You may make five cards the same or five different ones, you just need to upload a photo clearly showing five.
Now you can enter both challenges but you cannot enter one of your five cards in the single entry challenge. '


For my card I've used a shaped card blank which I distressed with fired brick distress ink, adding another of those glittery oval images (I have a lot of these - can't remember where I got them from), with the addition of a Craftwork cards sentiment circle and layered Docrafts flowers.

For my card I've used an offcut of Hunkydory card with the tartan border on to which I mounted an oval image of children bringing home some Christmas greenery. The tied ribbon is a piece from a lot that I bought some years ago now (sadly, not much of it left). Flowers are prima and the sentiment circle is Craftwork cards.
