I'm Back with Season's Greetings!

After a very busy week of work & college I was finally able to relax & chill out Friday to today. It's gone mega quick & it's back to work tomorrow but it won't be as busy this week. Thank goodness!!

Anyway, yesterday I spent some time with crafting friends Kerry, Claire & Sheila and we had a trip out to a couple of craft shops to stock up on supplies, have a natter & eat GOOD food! After a day of inspiration I found some time to make some cards.

This card uses one of my new PTI purchases which arrived on Friday morning, it's the Signature Christmas by Dawn McVey. The sentiments are lovely in this set :) I also made this card to fit in with this weeks Hero Arts challenge of Holiday Accessories.

I used a Hero Arts Poinsettia Art Flower & added a vintage button & twine to the centre. The holly background layer was created using the Holly Flourish from HA. I used my SU! markers to colour it in then spritzed some water over what I had coloured to moisten it agin & then stamped onto my card sock.

CS: Kraft PTI, Very Vanilla SU!
Stamps: Hero Arts Holly Flourish S5067, Signature Christmas PTI
Ink: Real Red SU!
Accessories: Poinsettia Art Flowers HA, SU! Markers, Vintage Lace, PTI Bitty Dot DP, Oval & Scalloped Oval Punch SU!, Foam Pads.

I am really pleased how this card turned out. It has a vintage feel but still looks contemporary at the same time!! I hope to share a few more creations with you all this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bev, this card is SO lovely! I really like the kraft with the green and red. Going to have to break out my PTIs too I think! Kx
