Yes a very different card from me today. I have seen a few cards around blogland with beautiful floral arrangements and thought I would have a go. I also though this would be a quicker card to make than one with a stamped and coloured image. How wrong could I be. I spent ages fiddling around until I was happy with it. My first thought was to have no backing paper but then I had nothing to wrap the lace around and I hate the ends just wrapped around the card blank. So I settled on Kaisercraft Dear Santa which I also used for the poinsettias which were cut and embossed with Marianne dies. I added some gorgeous lace from Crafty Ribbons, Woodware punched holly leaves, MD die cut floral vine leave and Marianne die cut pine branches. The raffia is actually some plastic which looks like raffia. It was wrapped around something I bought recently and immediately found its way to my stash. I used a Memento dewdrop brown stamp pad for a change on all the edge and added some brads and pearls to finish. The sentiment is from LOTV.
This is my inspiration card for Day 4 of the Crafty Ribbons Advent Calendar. Hop over to the Crafty Ribbons Pure Inspiration blog to play along and see what my teamies have made. Today you could win 3 digi sets from The Cuting Cafe.
