Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2016 challenge

These are my cards for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2016 challenge - please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of my team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

Both of my cards were made using papers from the Elegant Christmas pad from Poundland (there is one of these to be won on the challenge) and using Elisabeth Bell designs purchased from Hobby House. Scraps of matt pearlescent gold card were used to punch stars and some gems added. These were quick cards as I still have a lot of Christmas cards to make (despite making them all through the year ... sell lots to raise money for charity and end up not having enough for us to send).

These are also for:
