A Quickie :-)

I am REALLY sorry I missed the Bah Humbug Challenge last week ,, it was vellum and as the challenge on the ABC Christmas Challenge is 'V' I really SHOULD have added vellum !! So ,, in way of an apology I have made an Elegant Card ,, which fits their theme for this week ,,, and I added vellum too :-)

This Fantasy tree by Penny Black is one of my all time fave elegant stamps ,, I have almost worn it out !! definitely one of my better buys :-) I used Versacolour ink and silver embossing powder. the base card is navy blue and I used some SU paper which was a gift from Mandi from when I ordered a load of SU goodies from her :-) I also used some lovely sparkly vellum and ribbon from my local Binky Crafts, the red rose is Prima. I also used a Martha Stewart Icicle Punch ,,, another of my better buys ,,, well used !! :-)


Bah Humbug ,,,,, Elegant Christmas Card
Keep It Simple ,,, Take a Bow (and simple)
Christmas Card ,,,Include flowers
Totally Gorjuss ,,, Sparkle
Christmas Stampin' ,,, Something Metalic (silver emboss and silver stardream card)

Thanks for looking :-) I love reading your comments so please leave me one :-) xx

oh totally gorgeous Lorraine - so good that we will forgive you for missing last week! I love tree stamps - haven't got this one but quite a few that are so similar that I can't justify buying another really - well maybe I can.
