PDCC#55















Its been a whole week since I posted on my blog and I have missed it!! :0(   We have been decorating at home and no time for crafting till today.  The colours this week at The Play Date Cafe are a REAL challenge and It took me a while to come up with something that I really liked.

I decided to stick to making a Christmas card as I have no where near enough made yet.  Sorry about the poor photograph but its very dull here today and this card really isn't dull! The background card is Burgundy and the inner is a  pretty pink PP that I have had in my stash for ages.  The circle is made using the embossed resist technique with the Hero Arts Snowflake Circle and Broken China Distress Ink.  I have stamped and embossed the trees with a glitter gold emboss powder to lift the colours and then added the red gems.  Not the usual colours I would use for Christmas but I am actually pleased with the finished card!
I hope to get some more cards made today and hopefully find time to visit a few blogs, sorry I have not made many comments this week.
Hope you are having a great weekend and thanks for looking and commenting on my blog, I really appreciate it!!
