A Nordic Christmas and jingle bells …

Hi and welcome to my blog. It’s colour challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where we would like you to use red, green with silver or gold…

I chose a red and green patterned background paper from the Nordic Christmas paper pad, which was a gift from my best friend, Debs.  It has a wonderful fabric texture to it – so pretty in real life…

The paper is so lush I didn’t want to hide any of it, so simply added ribbon and a greetings tag, also from the same paper pad …

For the silver element of the challenge, I attached two silver jingle bells to the ribbon with silver elastic thread, tied in a bow, and added a punched silver snowflake, popped up on dimensionals, to the tag.

So, that’s my card for this week – no stamping, just some background paper and embellishments – I hope you like it.
