Spring Christmas

Let’s face it. Spring is on hiatus, so a Christmas card feels just as appropriate as a spring card and we’re nearly in April already! I am loving my stay in London. We spent last night at the Savoy Theatre for the ‘Let It Be’ musical and it was very good indeed! Although I admit I loved my little shopping spree in the M&Ms world afterwards as well, heh.

Anyway, card! This one is made with blank white card, purple card and pion papers. The image is from Inkido and the ribbon is from a local shop, as are the purple pearls I believe. As always, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branches are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. I cannot recall where the snow crystal is from unfortunately.


This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Heh, I work best under pressure anyway, so I guess I’ll spend the 23rd buying the last few. Here we celebrate on the 24th! Oh well, this post is supposed to include a card, isn’t it? Heh.
