LOC Joyful Ornament

Only a few sleeps now until the Layers of Color Ornament Blog Hop - I am getting excited as I know there is an overwhelming amount of inspiration and sheer beauty awaiting us all!

Christmas is approaching so quickly now and if where you live is anything like where I live, the Christmas decorations are going up in the shops and those overseas cards and parcels are starting to make their way to the recipients.

I am so pleased to have my cards made early, thank you to the newest releases from Layers of Color.  This card has used the Christmas Verses and Nature Walk art stamp sets.  I have also used one of my newest Spellbinders Dies - the Postage Stamp - it has been cut with the Grand Calibur - my 'must have' tool!.

I have also used a Stampin' Up punch (thanks Ann)

The gorgeous ribbon is a gift from a friend - don't you just LOVE it - I savour every centimetre of it and use it sparing!

This card is for the following challenges:
Christmas Inspirations - Die Cuts or Punches
 Crafting When We Can - Christmas 
Little Claire's - Christmas
 Totally Gorjuss -  Pastel Christmas
 Totally Papercrafts - layer upon layer
Wee Memories Challenge - Free for All
