And a partridge in a pear tree from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, I'm back with another card for the Christmas box. It's September already and the way this year is whizzing by it will be Christmas before we know it. This card was made using stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this set is called 'Turtle Doves'.


All the gorgeous new Christmas stamps have really got my Christmas crafting off to a good start. This card features another distress ink background.  The image has been stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Graph'It Markers. I've added some glossy accents to the pears and matted the image on some green card distressed with a craft knife. I've added the two birds (gold embossed on green card) and one of the lovely sentiments from Christmas Magic


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Early Christmas makes
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment other than birthday
Completely Christmas: anything goes
Jingle Belles: use gold
Penny's Paper Crafty: Christmas or children
Sweet Stampin: Embossing

I'd better get my skates on and go earn some pennies, have a great day and a big thank you for visiting today.
