Christmas Is...

Hello friends -  The Christmas Countdown is officially on - one week until Christmas Day!!!  Thank you to all those who commented on my previous  Christmas Card - if you have not seen it, you can find it HERE.  I have another one to share today - I hope you like this one as much.  I have to say I adore traditional Christmas colours but am really enjoying something a bit different.

My card today has been created using some discontinued products - but they are too gorgeous to pass up - My Dies have been cut using  the Spellbinders  Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.  My card is held together by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  My bling is from Want2Scrap    

The sentiment  is from Our Daily Bread Designs and  has been stamped using Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Ink. The fabulous silver paper is from Kaisercraft.  The sheer ribbon is from May Arts and the flowers are recycled from an artificial arrangement - I love these flowers and always recycle when they have 'had their day!'
