Holly Christmas Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins
Holly Christmas CardWhen I got this paper out to use I was immediately transported to Remembrance Sunday 2012 when The Duke and I were on a Sun Holiday in Christchurch, we were on our way home and popped into Lyndhurst. I can remember everything from the sharp Autumn sunshine and the nip in the air, the coffee and cakes we had, and me people watching from the cafe window ……  and then stumbling on a craft shop I had never seen before called Emerald Crafts where I bought the paper. A very, very happy weekend.
The paper is by KaiserCraft from the December 25th Collection  (P717 Festive), the sentiment is from CraftWork Cards and the holly was made using a large punch and embellished with red flat backed gems from Paperchase.
