CCAYR September challenge: use leaves

This is my design card for Christmas cards all year round September challenge: use leaves. I'm in the Christmas Belles group so we are posting here today - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Belles group. The Gingerbread gals posted at the beginning of September here - please have a look at their lovely designs and join in our challenge there.

For my card I used The Holly and the Ivy sheet music, stamping randomly around the edges using an old Tanda Stamps holly stamp and a couple of Anita's ivy stamps (love the long one - very useful for this kind of card), colouring with spectrum noir pends. This is an A5 size card.

This is one of those clean and simple cards that wasn't that simple to make ... a few tries at getting the sheet music the right size and in the centre and two or three goes at getting the right balance with the random stamping, including off the edge on to scrap paper. I was quite satisfied with the final version.

CHNC challenge extra for September mid-month inspiration

It's time for some mid-month inspiration from some of the DT on my CHNC challenge extra blog - you can see the lovely designs here and please join in the challenge here.

For my card I used papers and trim from Kaisercraft Merry & Bright paper pad, adding an image that I had a few years ago from the Crafty Pad (sadly, they closed about four years or so ago).
