Merry Christmas

This weeks subject for the
is a inspirational photo and this is my idea taken from the photo
The base card is a gate fold card with an extra bit inside.
All the stamps I have used are from Creative Expressions clear stamp sets and versa colour ink pad.
The green card is Tim Holtz distress card and the borders have been cut with a Fiskars border punch.
I have put a length of green ribbon down the centre of the borders on the inside and a bow on the centre panel.
I have added a little irridescent glitter using a glue pen to the dots on the Merry Christmas greeting and to all the trees. Finished with green gems on the top corners of the front of the card and one on the sentiment inside.

I have entered this card in the following challenges this week:

Craft Your Passion - Tis the Season
