A Victorian Christmas Card


As you can see from the photo, we've got masses of snow - I've almost forgotten what the garden looks like! The image was a free download from here matted onto burgundy card.  I used a red and cream patterned backing paper, again mounted onto burgundy card.  Burgundy 25mm satin ribbon which ties into beautiful bows and two strips of 18mm zig zag cream cotton lace, both from Ribbon Girl matched the colours perfectly.

I used some stickles to enhance the berries on the holly of the old photo and added some tiny holly leaves then red roses from Wild Orchid and I am entering this card into the wild orchid challenge
