Pink Petticoat Laurels...


As you know I have been making a 'selection box' of cards for our personal Christmas cards.

I have been using as much of my Christmas stash as I can. My stash got a little boost this week, as both my MIL and SIL bought me things from the UK for my stash that are Christmas related - so nice of them.

I love Pink Petticoat, especially the Christmas items. I used the Christmas Laurels for the cards I am showing today.

As per Liz's wonderful examples, I didn't colour them in perfectly and I used a few pinks and blues that are a bit non-traditional. I added lots of lovely bling to them.

They have turned out so pretty, I don't want to give them up :)

Here are a few more examples and a close-up of the bling.

I am really enjoying making lots of different cards. I've also decided to take them to Mexico and start writing them out.
