The theme over at Hazel's Christmas Challenge this week is 'Favourite Colour', so I chose to mainly use green on my card, as I am having a bit of a 'thing' about that colour at the moment!
For a change, I attempted to do a card with a fold in it - only a simple shortfall fold-back (ooh - technical term!), but makes a change from the usual simple cards I do.
The backing papers and owl sentiment are designed by Nikky Hall for Polkadoodles - and came from Making Cards magazine, November 2011. I used a Spellbinder die through my Cuttlebug to make the tag to mount the sentiment on, and the holly leaves were cut from green glitter card (part of a super-cheap kit from Tesco - a January bargain when they greatly reduce all the Xmas stock). Candy was coloured with a red pen to make the holly berries, and some green gems/glitter from stash added highlights to the sentiment.
I love owls, so this card makes me smile and is sitting on my desk.
