To My Wonderful Wife at Christmas

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
wow were there some wet fields on my way to work yesterday, do hope you are all taking care travelling and I am thinking of those struggling with the floods.
Over the last few days  I have as you may have noticed been into creating cards for all those males out there, who want something extra special for their wives.

So here is another one

This is another 8" square card using some of my very old papers, so again sorry cannot remember who they are by.

The base colour is a lovely pearlescent red those gorgeous green and beige papers, a lovely glass coated poinsettia with some punched holly leaves.  Beautiful lace around the image plate which is one of the small grand nestie circles, layered onto one of the new fancy grand circles.  The beautiful heart die cuts from Memory box.  The sentiment is computer generated and sits on another of the nestie ribbon/banner dies.  Another double bow with some little red pearls and tiny diamante's around the image.

Here are some close ups

The double bow with the ends wrapped around the card, with a couple of bells for that Xmas feel.  You can just see the heart die peeking through.

The poinsettia with the spun glass for that frosted look.

The sentiment this has been airbrushed whilst still in the die.

The gorgeous House Mouse image and that lovely lace surrounding it and you can just spy the little diamante's on this one

This card is for sale and can be found on my page at the top or you can contact me
