Distressed Christmas

Hello again and welcome to this weeks
Unfortunately this will be the last challenge from The Secret Crafter, it will be sad to see it go but things are changing and it is time to bring it to an end.

The theme this week is

Our final sponsor is Heather's Hobbie Haven with a $15 voucher

For my card this week I have done Christmas, I thought it was about time to start. I have used a deckle edge card for the base and this has been covered with a patterned paper leaving a tiny border. I have then put a rectangle of a matching patterned paper layered on red deckle edge card on the top, this was cut with a spellbinder die. A merry Christmas greeting has been stamped on the top left. All these layers have been lightly distressed.

I have stamped the image and coloured it with Promarkers and glitter has been put on the coat and hat edges. This has also been layered on to red card. A piece of green ribbon is across this center of the card. To the left of the image I have put a single silk flower with punched leaves and just a few gems to add a bit of sparkle to it.
