Green Santa!

Good Morning,
Sun's shining, birds are singing and I've finished my card I started yesterday(see post below). So until I go to give Mitzi a haircut later all is well in my little world :) This card I took my inspiration from a card that Els made. It's all green, very unusual, so I thought I'd have a go at something similar...

The base card is Stardream pearlescent green card, and the backing paper is another of my computer manipulated designs. It started life as a free paper I got from a craft magazine. It was green to begin with, but not the shade of green I wanted (in real life it is darker than shown). So into the trusty graphics program it went. After it was printed I sponged the edges with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad. The DP band along the middle is Prima Marketing Urban Cosmos “Colony” that I punched with a Friskars holly border punch. Then just added some greeny gold ribbon and some brass brads from We R Memory Keepers. Thank you to Els for her fabulous card, and thank you all for looking.

Take care & keep smiling

I like this, a lot, I cant't specify what it is, but it has something to do with the atmosphere. It makes me feeling so much like childhood x-mas when my grandparent still very with us.

Love your card, it's gorgeous.
I'm glad I could inspire you!
And now, ma sorcière préférée, je t'ai laissé 'un award' sur mon blog! (I hope my French is still OK, as I don't get a chance to practice it very often)
