My first Christmas card

Well, here it is, my first Christmas card in 2011.
I used my cricut Basic George to cut out the two circles, it's the first time that I have done this on my Cricut, I have only used it for lettering before. I used my purple ink for the stamps. I used images from my Artilicious cd rom to create the backing paper and embossed edging. The ribbon and snowflakes were from my stash.
I want to get ahead next year so  I am going to join in with the Christmas blog challenges, starting in January !

The challenges I am entering are;

1st Christmas card

Wedding Day distress !!

The backing papers for this card are from my CC Papercraft cd rom, which I tore and inked.
The image is a digital stamp from Sliekje, I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir pens, I am new to alcohol pens, and apart from the colour of the wedding dress  I am quite pleased.
I love the paper roses, it's the first time I have made them, and although fiddly, they are quite simple to make.
