Christmas Card Club - apertures

Well I think summer has popped by to say hello today, it's still a tad chilly but it's gloriously sunny. We've spent the afternoon walking the dog around one of the local country parks which was like a quagmire after all the rain we've had!
Another fortnight has been and gone and it was Zoe's turn to choose the theme for the challenge at the Christmas Card Club and she wants to see an aperture. Now I'm not really an aperture sort of person so I've cut mine out of a scalloped circle to create a frame for my image.


The image is from an old Kanban set and is bordered with a purple foil which I didn't want to see. I lined up the two largest scalloped circles and cut a frame which fitted perfectly. The backing paper is from My Mind's Eye and was a magazine freebie. Card is simply finished with some binders twine and a sentiment.
If you'd like to see the cards the other girls have made you'll find the list on my side bar.

Challenges entered:
52 Card Throwdown - nativity scene
CHNC - touch of the blues
Oh La La Creations - ribbon or twine
