Bright and Colourful Christmas

A quick post tonight with one of the last of my Christmas cards I love the bright greens I used here. I won this a part of a set of digi in the summer for a blog hop at Ladybird Crafts Ink, the set is  called Christmas delights they are fab and very modern images. There is a great one with handbags and other with shoes that I've coloured but not yet made into cards, I plan to over the next few week so watch out for them. I wasn't sure abut the chevron paper but its growing on me… hubby isn't keen on this as he says it makes his eyes ‘ go funny’ so I added the candi to tone it down a little. The pretty frilly ribbon is from a kit from the The Ribbon Girl, from a set which I won… they have such beautiful things in there store I love them all.  It’s the first time I've used anything from the kit as I just love to look at all the pretty ribbons, lace and bits that where in it… but it was perfect for this card, and I can’t keep everything that I like to look at I’d get nothing made ! Have a fab week …hugs x

  9. I love the chevron and it helps with the brads breaking it up a bit, but I think it's a perfect choice for the color and the festiveness on your card. It's wonderful how you've colored it up too!
