A Little Festive Holly Ring

Good morning to you in the land of blog
Today is team Kate's turn to host the


and the host this week is the very talented Linda

the theme she has chose for this week is

Photo Inspirational

We are sponsored by the fabulous

Please pop and take a look at the rest of the creations by my wonderful teamies

Here is my design team inspirational piece
The base layer is some red mirror card, on top of this is some black card.  The image is a topper photograph that has been backed with some Woodware double sided sheeting and then cut into equal squares.  These squares are then placed carefully onto more black card and this gives it that old fashioned window effect.  I then cut a circle with my grand nesties and the callibur and added lots and lots of embossed holly leaves to create a Festive Holly Ring.  I added some large red pearls for the holly berries and a little red bow.  I added a tag for the sentiment, hoping it would look like a letter to be posted in that frosted post box.  

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Anything Goes - Pearls
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Christmas Inspirations - A Christmas Scene
Craftyhazelnut's - Foliage

I would like to welcome my new followers and say thank you to those of my visitors that leave me such wonderful comments.

Hugs Kate xx
