Christmas Card Club

Crikey where did those two weeks go?? It's time again for us girls to display our Christmas cards for the club - see my sidebar for all the participants and get in touch with one of us if you'd like to join in. This is just for fun and we make a card once a fortnight, this time it was it was Lizzie's turn to set the challenge and she said no backing papers. This is my card:

Image is a freebie from Inger Harding and the frame is a freebie from SansDesign both have been coloured with promarkers. Base card is peach stardream, ivory stardream has been out through a Marianne Design snowflake diecut folder, then matted onto copper mirri card - the waste snowflakes have been used around the outside along with some gemstones. The image is mounted onto a Marianne Design doiley diecut from copper mirri card. The gorgeous ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons.
