   Another Christmas card completed! I wrapped two rows of narrow ribbon round paper from Wild Rose Studio's A Robin's Christmas paper pack and matted it onto white card. The stamped image 'Little festive robins' from Lili of the Valley was coloured using Promarkers and the edges inked with distress ink. It was then matted onto red mirri card.
   I cut two branches from green card using a Tattered Lace lavish winter foliage die and fixed this to the top left hand corner of the card together with a bow made from the narrow ribbon. In the bottom right hand corner I attached a flower created by using Tattered Lace lavish poinsettia dies and a card candi. I sprayed it with glitter before attaching it.
   The sentiment is made from waste peel off stuck to red mirri card.
