Good day one & all! Just squeaking it in with the ONE LAYER CHRISTMAS CARD challenge #5!
So, I did the optional twist. Once again I've used the BOKEH effect on the background.
It's amazing how you can transform a plain piece of white card :)
Here you can see the 'bokeh' stars & my silver glitter heat embossing of the Christmas tree:
 Couldn't resist this little French chrissy greeting, either...
...which leads me to the next challenge!
Here is my entry into
Défi carte mars Céline
OK, so I'm not fabulous at French - but you need to use the colour palette plus LAYERING, background of WATERCOLOURING, THREAD & at least one flair. Pretty NICE challenge!!
And it's all there!!!
The flowers are from DUSTY ATTIC.
The little leaf swirl on the left came with my CCC card from GAIL! Thankyou;)
This is one of the 4 'kits' I made up for myself when I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of scrappy days with these special scrappy friends - Sandra & Mary:
These are such gorgeous girls and it was a wonderful time AND we scrapped, not just talked;)
Thanks for your scrappy support & checking out my 'creations'
Lizzy ♥♥♥
