Christmas Sparkle

Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I have been doing any craft cards and so my blog has suffered.

Hope you like this card. Entering this in the challenge at Stamp and Create Merry Christmas all Marion

Just Magnolia

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been around but my telephone and internet went down and I have been without for nearly a week. I must say it is good to have it back today.
There was some problem at the exchange. It is surprising how much we rely on our computer for communications and how adrift we feel when not available.
Anyway, this is a card which I think fits the current challenge at Just Magnolia.

The image is coloured with distress inks.
Cardstock is Coredinations from the Elements pad.
DP is Kay & Co
Doily is a Marianne creatable.
Ribbon from stash.
Pressed flowers from local shop.
Sentiment is from LOTV
Most die cuts are Spellbinders.

I shall be trying to catch up with everyone now that I am back online.
