First Christmas card!


You have to start sometimes I guess, but it feels very far away, just now being away on a beautiful beach on Langkawi island! Well I did this before leaving for Truly Scrumptious challenge a sketch by Heather, see below! I think the photo is not giving justice to the card, one can hardly see the little Santa in the corner, but I hope you like it!

Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia
Colored with Copics
Papers: Daisyd's and 7 Gypsies
Lace bought in Singapore
Santa charm: Bunny Zoe's Craft
Flowers: Prima
Red berries: bought in Chinatown
Challenge: Truly Scrumptious-Heather

Merry Christmas!!! It is just 3 months left, so I think it's OK to start!
Have you made the ticket self, or have you bought it???
Love it!!

Pent kort igjen. Fikk følelsen av et julekort fra et varmt sted, ikke en nordisk jul over det kortet! Kjempefint.
