Wow I seem to be in the blog land zone this week and I have had a busy week at work. Good job my husband takes care of the housework and meals lol. Just plucked the courage up and tried my luck at being a DT member for C.R.A.F.T Challenge.  It was their  Christmas Challenge 355, that inspired me to make this card of which I am entering. I made some cards for a work colleague 2015 xmas and she loved them, so has given me an order for this year. One that stood out to me was a one for her god daughter, I  purchased this set of toppers online from The Hobby House . It seemed to fit in with the theme, got plenty of time to make another one if  its not right.
Anyway on to the card, its made using Elizabeth Bell - Christmas Angels  The backing paper I embossed with a 6x6 Crafters Companion Christmas Folder, then rubbed over with a gold ink pad to pick up the baubles. The snow flake is a Memory Box die and the sentiment from Wild Rose, stamped and embossed.
