Anything Goes at 52 (Christmas) card Throwdown,

Evening Everyone
I know, I know, I can hear you all scream but Christmas is over.
Well I am so determined that I will stay on top of my Christmas card making this year that I have decided to follow a couple of challenges devoted to Christmas all year round.
52(Christmas) card Throwdown is actually a new blog and their first challenge is Anything Goes. Nice and easy to start you off :)
I made this card with my Grandchildren in mind, but who knows who I will send it to by the time December comes around again lol.
I have been very good when making it and have used up some bits and pieces that I had in my Christmas drawer. Sorry guys it has escalated from a box!!
The little girl is Winter Tilda coloured with distress inks, and I even found a robin that I made using shrink plastic.
The background was a piece that I made during a class on Faux Mother of Pearl with some of the lovely Stampendous embossing powder used on the pine branches.
The flowers and Mistletoe are cut using various dies and I added some ready made flowers and stamen from my stash.
I think it has turned out quite well considering it has been made out of left overs.
Oh well 1 down only another 124 to go if this year is anything to go by. I think I had better use up a few more of those left over bits.
So why don't you head on over 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown and enter a card.
Come on I'm sure you must have some bits and pieces that you could manage to turn in to your first Christmas card of 2012.
I'll try and post again tomorrow - not Christmas I promise.
