Make a wreath

This card is for 365 day 296: 'make a wreath' - 'Create a wreath on your card...but there's a catch (of course!). It doesn't count if you use a stamp of a wreath or patterned paper with wreaths on it. Get creative with this, and don't feel it has to be any kind of traditional wreath.'

I used some of the lovely prima gems that I got as part of my November prize from Quixotic and also some of the beautiful leaves that came in my package from Gez (seen here).

Making another Christmas card continues my new year resolution to make Christmas cards throughout the year (I'm doing quite well, because we haven't even reached new year yet!) - and 'new year resolutions' is the theme for Corrosive 44, so it's right for that.

Rudolph's got a bright new bell!

This card is for Mojo Monday sketch 118:

and also for RosieDee 60: 'Rudolph's got a bright new bell!' - I apologise that on this scan it looks as if Rudolph has got a green bell, but irl it's gold! Papers were free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, so it's a quick and easy card (although a bit fiddly to cut out the reindeer and sleigh).
