Christmas Challenge

This is Poya (one of Toread's friends).

I made this card for the August Christmas Card challenge set by Julie. The challenge was that you should make a Christmas card, with glitter and some of our precious ribbon, but NO Christmas Trees anywhere on the card. Poya was such a cutie sitting in the centre of his little Holly Wreath so I knew he had to be part of my design. I cut out the decoupage image and then mounted Poya onto Gold Mirri card to which I added some red ribbon and then mounted the gold onto Red Mirri card. Then I stuck the layers onto the red cardstock which had already been stamped with a gold leaf in the background. I then stamped the large Inkadinkadoo 'Merry Christmas' stamp which I stamped in black and then added a layer of glitter over the top of all the lettering and then added the flowers in coordinating colours with buttons in the centre.
