First of Many Christmas cards

Hi Everyone

Its that time of year again... end of July must mean its time to start thinking about Christmas.  I always make a start early, but this year I'm hoping for a craft stall at the local church Christmas fair, so I'm making extra cards!

My first is a Lili of the valley image that I just adore. I brought it recently when they had their sale.

I coloured him with distress inks and colour washed all around the background, adding frantage for a snowy look.  The Backing papers are from an old set (I can't remember what make they are though - i have so many bits lying about!).  The die cuts are both Britannia dies - one Ivy and the other pine cones, also inked with distress inks.  The sentiment is from an Imagination craft set.  Finished with a bow and a sparkly gem.

I'd like to enter this into:
