Believe In The Magic

Morning and I have yet another Christmas card to share today. I'm determined to make all my cards this year and as such have started early; which I know for some it is too much to bare as summer has just gone! its not been difficult for me as I have some fab new stamps and papers; that I have loved using as well as old stash from last year that I forgot I had !...and Christmas is my most favourite time of the year. I love the silent night papers used, some of which are glazed others glittered and they are all beautiful patterns it was hard to choose what to use first! Its also the first time I've used vellum for flowers and I'm pleased with the result. Sadly my photographic skills aren't great and does not pick up the fabulous sparkle and glitter. I think this is probably the nicest card I've ever made and I'm really pleased with it... the hard part will be choosing who to give it too!
