Completely Christmas challenge 4

It's time for Completely Christmas 4 - please click on the link and see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in with our challenge.

For my design card I used 'pinecone and needles' which was kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge, Sparkle n sprinkle. I used the image one way up and then another, joining them digitally. I coloured with spectrum noir pens.

The image was first die cut with a Nestie then matted on to a stamped oval with Briliance pearlescent ivy,matted on to another oval cut out with Fiskars deckle scissors and which was then matted on to a torn oval using a piece of Core'dination card, revealing the lighter green.

I usedKeisercraft background paper, a piece of striped scrap of My Mind's Eye Lost & Found, buttons, sentiments etc from MME 'all is bright'.
