Christmas in Autumn

The challenge this week at Winter Wonderland is to use the colours of Autumn in a christmas card. I'm also entering this card into Christmas cards all year round, where the theme is to use at least one of the Halloween colours (orange, green, purple, black).

I've used backing papers and topper from MCS - Winter Wishes CD. I've also stamped and embossed a bauble from Kanban and coloured in the Spectrum Noirs direct onto the printed topper. Extra small snowflakes have been stamped and embossed on to the topper too.  The frame was cut out on my Craft Robo and inked with Big and Juicy Foliage, the borders were made using a Martha Stewart punch.

Natures Wonder

I'm a bit late entering Cd sunday challenge this week. The theme is Natures Wonder. I've used an image and backing paper from MCS CD - Winter Wonderland and gold paper from my stash. I've added glitter to the image and backing paper but it hasn't shown up very well in the picture.
