An Elegant Christmas Card

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and have been enjoying the festive season.  We have not long got back from spending a couple of days with my sister and her family.  We had a great time but I have eaten and drank far too much.  Hubby is back at work tomorrow so looking forward to spending a bit of crafty time.

Just popping by to post a christmas card that I made for my youngest daughter to give to her Nan.

The card blank is a fold back style that I got from the NEC.  The papers and image were in my christmas stash and I have had them for about three years.  I matted and layered using silver mirror card.  Down both sides I added some organza ribbon and card candi.  I also added an organza bow and card candi to the front of the card.  A dazzler added to the bow and some gems and stickles around the sentiment finished the card.  I also added some glamour dust glitter to the image.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to reading all your comments.  Going to have a restful evening now catching up on some commenting.

Absolutely gorgeous, Mags! Love the color and the layout! Very nice use of your die cuts. The ribbon framing your focal is probably my favorite element!
