Christmas Fashionista

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you enjoy your weekend? We had a quiet couple of days, only left the house for some groceries and the cinema, where we watched Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom which was a great film.

This Monday sees another challenge @ Ooh La La and this time it was my turn to come up with a challenge theme. I chose: FASHIONISTA, Not that I'm such a fashion enthousiast myself (people who know me can attest to that!), but I do enjoy looking at lovely dresses especially from eras gone by.

This is my first Christmas card of this year; it's a fairly simple card but the image is stunning enough to pull it off I thought!

* Basic Grey Jovial DPs
* Distress Tool & Vintage Photo Distress Ink
* Brads from stash

* Allsorts (Use Brads)
