Lili of the Valley Challenge

Morning all, thank goodness that horrible wind has died down and its a bit warmer today hope it lasts.   I wonder how many of you have made a good start on your Christmas Cards already,  theres only about 14 weeks to go for the big day Smile, if you haven’t made a start yet our Theme this week on Lili of the Valley Challenge  may  give you a kick start,  its a colour challenge RED, GREEN and WHITE  just perfect for Christmas, and there is some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.

This is my card for the Challenge, I have used Lili of the Valley “Christmas Snooze” for this one.  The papers are from Nitwits Collections, if ever you are struggling to find a matching paper for your card, I would recommend that you visit Nitwits Collections I find it a gold mine for backing papers and can always find a set to match and with the paper packs being so reasonable it doesn’t cost a lot to  build up a library of papers.

Lots of Dies used for this card, Nesties, Marianne Star Ribbon Border, available from Crafts U Love, and Stars are a Die-namics Die from Dies to Die for.
