Classic Christmas

Happy Wednesday all!

A fortnight has gone by, meaning it's time for a new Fab 'n Funky challenge. And what do you know: It's our monthly Christmas challenge! It's my first time playing along and I think it's a great idea. I haven't been working on my Christmas cards at all this year, only having 2 measly cards in my stash so far. So this challenge is going to be a great way for me to focus on Christmas cards a little bit more so that I don't have to worry about it so much come December. Maybe it works the same way for you :) I've used up some of decoupage image I have had in my stash for ages and simultaneously tried out a holly leaves die I got for Christmas and never got around to using it yet. Shame on me, as it's such a versatile die, perfect for Christmas cards! I'm going to try to make a wreath next, there's no stopping me now ;) The green dots under the image are actually the leftovers from the diecut, they seemed to good to waste.
