Christmas Wishes!....

No! not literally...I just made my first Christmas card.  Although I never usually start so early, I wanted to create something with my newest embossing folder from Sizzix.
Hello and a warm welcome to my new followers!
I hope all my lovely blogging friends are enjoying some fabulous sunshine!  Unfortunately, living so near to the Pennines we tend to get quite a lot of rain, and today is no exception. Dull skies, and drizzle, hence the poor photo. It is very humid though. It is good weather to be indoors crafting, and here is my first Christmas card...
I used Sizzix 'Winter Botanicals' set which has one large and three smaller embossing folders. The largest folder is quite large, my card is 5" x 7" (approx 130 x 180 mm).  I embossed and cut out one of the smaller poinsettias, glittered and placed it on top of the larger design to give some definition. 
I tied a double bow using 25mm sheer elegance ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, to which I added a red glitter brad and computer generated sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by.  I will be back on Tuesday with a card for my third week as guest designer for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
