Bah Humbug Challenge...

Our challenge this week from Bah Humbug is Christmas Crackers.  Needed to get my thinking head on for this one.  Managed to find this vintage image of two children pulling a cracker.
Backing papers used are from Craft Creations.  The poinsettia was sent to me by my lovely friend Janie she has used a Marianne die and cut the petals out with a velvet fabric, very pretty so 'thank you' Janie.  Punches used, EK sucess swirl and S.U. ovals.

Well done for finding a cracker image - it appears from some of the comments that we weren't the only ones who had problems finding something suitable.
