A country Christmas

Well, the cold is easing off and I'm crafting again! I've got lots of DT makes to catch up on but first of all a "real time" card from me, a Christmas card made using an image with decoupage frame from the "Once upon a Christmas Time" section of the CD "The Best of La Pashe 2012"  and a Cotswold Stone effect backing paper from the same CD.


I have added extra interest and texture to the decoupage by going over the Christmas Roses with clear Stickles and the mistletoe berries with Liquid Pearls.

I am sharing this with

  12. A stunning traditional wintry Christmas scene Jane, the Christmas roses and mistletoe shimmer against the stone background which is a perfect match to the colour of the stones in the bridge. Thank you for entering the challenge at CD Sunday this fortnight Meg x
