Another Christmas & Birthday Card

Thank goodness for the Just Christmas & Birthday cards challenge to get me making at least 1 Christmas & 1 Birthday card a week lol (though I am way behind with my Christmas cards - it might be better if the challenge was just Christmas & Christmas cards). This week it is Karin's fab sketch.

The Birthday card is using Forever Friends papers & stamps which were a birthday pressie from my dear friend Linda. I finished this card off with a stamped greeting some flowers brads & a bear charm.

The Christmas card is made using HOTP paper & paper & image from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas CD which I used a lot last year but this is my first card using it this year. I kept it quite simple just highlighting the image with a Sakura glitter gel pen, added some metal holly embellishments & finished off with 4 lil gems.

Tracey, I LOVE your vintage Christmas! Everything matches so perfectly and gives an elegant look.

The lil' bear is such a cutie and using the tiny charm is a beautiful finishing touch.

Thank you for playing along with us at Just X-Mas and B-Day Cards.
