St Lukes Challenge....

A new month and a new challenge from St Lukes Charity card Challenge and this months challenge is' SIMPLE CHRISTMAS'....
We would like to see simple designs with lots of white space on your cards..
.
Although having 3 layers of white card and a flower my card was so quick and simple to make as its all die cutting and a little bit of punching.

I used my new Marianne Creatable Anja Die which I have layered up and also used Spellbinders Ponsettia die,  added a few punched fern leaves and a little bit of ribbon...Alhough using a fancy die there is still lots of white space....

Our prize this month has kindly been donated my Waltzing Mouse Stamps and is a lovely stamp sheet called: Twas the night before Christmas'.


Visit the St Lukes Charity card Challenge see what the  other DT members   have come up with this month...
We look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations...

Wow such a beautiful card Anne, those white layers look so delicate and pretty.
The red and green of the poinsettia just pop right off the card..... Great idea to cut one of the petal rounds as leaves...perfect for a smaller embellishment :0)
