Christmas Wishes

Here is a Christmas card that I made using Santa Christmas from Karen's Doodles. The base of my card is cream card stock backed in burgundy card stock.  I added a piece of green card stock. To the bottom of the green I added a piece of burgundy that I punched using an eyelet lace border punch.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it first in burgundy and then in cream.  I added a bit of brown sugar baker's twine with a snowflake charm attatched with a bow.  I added a sentiment from Annette. You can get that freebie by going here. I added a little color to the wording in the center and around the edges. I backed it in burgundy and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  I added 3 burgundy pearls to the top corner and 1 to the center of the snowflake charm.

This is most definitely my favorite Christmas card I have seen yet. I am not one for traditional Christmas cards and I just wonder to watch the papers you have used and what a fantastic image, I am going to have to get that. Really brilliant card.
