Sunday 13th November

It is Armistice Sunday and I have just watched the parade past the Cenotaph in Whitehall. I am now going to browse through some CDs to see if I can find anything that resembles "paisley" for the CD Sunday challenge.
I managed to finish my 4th Christmas card yesterday so I am feeling quite smug. This one is a little more cutesy.

The base card is white. The backing paper is a free download that I acquired many years ago and I like it so much that I resurrect it every year. The snowflakes have been lightly glittered but unfortunately it doesn't show up in the picture. I have tied dark green ribbon round a length of white pearlecent card which has been embossed with the Cuttlebug. the card has then been fixed in the centre of the card. The image is a LOTV one and I love it, I have coloured it using Promarkers. The frame is cut with a Spellbinder die from green and white mottled glitter paper. I have lined the frame with green ribbon to give the picture definition. I have then raised the frame from the image with foam pads to give depth and then fixed it off centre. The sentiment has been stamped with a greeting stamp that I have had for many years so I can't remember the make
