CCAYR January mid-month inspiration

This is my first card for CCAYR mid-month inspiration - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge here - it's 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas!

Papers are My Mind's Eye - both offcuts left over from using some of the larger sheets earlier. The picture was prepared originally for a mini Christmas card, but didn't get used, so I decided to put it on here - and a couple of Hobbycraft poinsettias.

This is also for:

  1. Lovely card Hazel! I do like how you manage to tear paper yet keep it looks decent rather than like a couple of dogs had a fight over it as happens when I try it!
