Christmas Card Club - "12 Days of Christmas"

Good afternoon all. It's a nice bright autumnal day here, hope it is with you too.

The main daytime wedding invites were delivered yesterday so I'll have to make a start on the evening ones this week...I need 90-100 of them, thankfully they're fairly simple!

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Sue P's turn to choose the theme this time and she's asked for the "12 Days of Christmas".  Here is my card:


I had to put my thinking cap on for this one!! Then I remembered this digi image and sentiment from Pink Petticoat which I've teamed up with papers from their Scandi Chic Winter Blooms collection and a small Christmas sentiment. Dies are from Spellbinders and border punch is from Tonic. Card is finished with crafter's cord and gems from my stash.


You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
