September Challenge for Ladies, Ink Part 1

Good morning everyone,

Here is the first part of a three part challenge for September with the Ladies, Ink Blogging Group. This month we are to make 3 Xmas cards......So, here is my first one! Very non-traditional. I reckon this one would look pretty in the usual Xmassy colours too, but I wanted to try it in something different!

What do you think?I have used a gorgeous StampIt Xmas stamp here (Christmas Round 3681F) which I have stamped multiple times in order to get all the layering. The Merry Xmas in the middle is raised with dimensionals. The paper is by Kaiser as are the fancy brads and the little buckle by Finishing Touch Ideas. The grosgrain ribbon, I think is SU. The rest is Bazzill. I laid the card on a blue background so you could see the white base card clearly, just for the photo opportunity!

For anyone who is interested and cannot source any of these things, I do sell them :). Just whizz off an email and I can see if I can help you out.
