Card Candy...



I had some fabulous card candy sent to me by my lovely blogging friend Loll Thompson...Loll makes the most beautiful cards so please check out her blog Stamping with Loll

Using Loll's candy I've actually made my first Christmas card and here it is:




I used Anna Marie's lovely pearlized cream card but unfortunately it looks white on the photograph.. Some of Loll's hand made poinsettias were glittered and so was some of the greenery and as the card was slightly sparkly I've used the glittered candy.
I've Kept my card simple by using Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight and using Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Dainty Dots folder.. Sentiment is computer generated...

Hope you've all had a good weekend despite the weather not being brilliant..
