WOJ CHALLENGE 57 - Christmas Card

I just loved the theme over on the WoJ challenge blog as I have got to make quite a few Christmas cards still! So here is my take on the Christmas card challenge.

I used my Festive Winter Willow, coloured her with copics, cut out with my oval nestie and mounted onto a larger oval nestie shape cut from blue card stock from my stash.
The dp used is the same double sided sheet from Bo Bunny called Tis the Season Treasure. On the middle strip I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and mounted onto red card stock from my stash. The sentiment is from craftworkcards.co.uk and is mounted onto the same dp and cardstock cut out with my SU plain oval and scallop oval punch. The flowers are Prima mini rose and Prima Trellis Roses Fontaine. I used my L-Em fern branch punch on some white shimmer card and the red adhesive gems are Papermania.
