Circle card and Christmas place settings

The place settings are for the challenge on the "Cards"magazing blog. The challenge was to make some place settings for thanksgiving, as we don't celebrate thanksgiving in the UK changed them to settings for christmas. (I hope thats allowed!!) Inside the setting is a small pack containing two after dinner mints.(Yummy).
Also after seeing the lovely Vanessas beautiful baby cards, I was inspired to make one myself. This is for the current challenge on the Caardvarks blog ( A circular card). I decided to make a shaker card as I really enjoy making them.

Beautiful place settings Sally. I have never done anything really fancy for the table before, except when I went totally OTT for my wedding. I really love the idea of mints being included in the place setting... think I might have a go myself this year.
Love that cute little baby card. I really love all the little circle cards that you are making and love that you have made a round shaker card.
The current Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is 'easel' cards. These look lovely and I have to admit that I thought of you when I saw them. Fancy a go?
