Another Christmas Card

Hello dear friends and fellow blogging buddies.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and the big guy in red was good to you.
 We celebrated with family at our daughter's home on Christmas day and it was wonderful.
Now the rush is over and we're slowly getting back to normal.   Yesterday we awoke to over 30 cm of the white fluffy stuff......so pretty when the sun is shining and the sky is blue.

I have a Christmas card to show you today that was commissioned by a friend for one of her granddaughters who's favourite colour is purple. It had to go in an envelope so I kept it fairly flat.   I've used a Saturated Canary digi called Hand Me Downs....hope you like it.


  Large snowflake - CB, small snowflake, MS punch.  Sentiment from a set I purchased last year -cut out using Spellbinders circle and mounted on SB scallop circle.  Green layer embossed with TH brick embossing folder.

  


Envelope made to fit the 6x6 inch card.  Spellbinder tag embossed and left blank to add the name.
Copics:
BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV02
YG25, G11, YG0000
E44, 43, 42, 40

Beautiful card, Pat :-) All the elements are just fabulous. You've had 30cm snow and we've got 41 degrees Celcius (106F) - but at least we've both got blue sky, lol. I'm glad you had a nice Christmas, hope your New Year is just as good, Donna ☺
