A Christmas Noel

And another challenge I've just about managed in time! I have been asked to make a traditional Christmas card for a Grandma (I've not added the wording yet as I'm not sure where it will go!) and decided that this was the sketch to follow from Sketch and Stash!

I've used a tree decoration that I bought from Sainsbury's last year, layered it onto burgundy card, rounded and inked the edges and the backing paper is the Vintage Christmas download from Mad About Cards.

The burgundy organza ribbon is new and I've used it double to create a wider border on the card. All the ends have been tied together to form a bow at the bottom.

I quite like the simplicity of this!
