Challenge 7 at CCC- Christmas Theme

This is the next theme at the CCC blog, and as I told you before, I wished to use Katharina's lovey sketch again. This time the base card I used was rectangular, instead of square card. The main image , that of Edwin dressed up for Christmas, is cut with Nestabilities. I mounted on red scalloped card. For the bottom I used a piece of DP from my stash, good way of using scraps :)

At the bottom, I decorated a strip of the same DP used with red crossed ribbon,after being mounted on white then green cardstock. The main image is embellished with adhesive green gems and I doodled some words that, for me, are the best part of the Christmas Spirit :)


Green and white cardsock
Edwin image
Circle and Scalloped circle Nestabilities
DCWV text prints
Red organza Ribbon
Two way glue
Fine silver glitter
Star brads
Green self adhesive gems
Black fine pen

I do wish that sharing, family, peace, joy, presents and love are true gifts from the heart that we all find delight to shower upon our loved ones( and not only to these) not only during one festive season or another, but all through the year. They make life so much more pleasant and lovely to live.
God bless
