 Hello everyone,

Saturday here late afternoon drizzling with rain, no wind, muggy, I've been crafting away and having a ...............................well, let's put it this way, I could have made a sailor blush as I got so frustrated...but that is for another day, today we I am sharing Christmas card # 19.. and another dusky glittery pink..

I had to use the leftovers from poinsettia die cutting day,
 as they are so pretty, and sparkle with a subtle  shine..

As for the background I used a sheet of yellow brown paper which came to life after embossing it through a folder and then ripped the edges a bit and rolled them back.

Seemed like a cool thing to do, then popped the picture in place.

Placed the flowers in the right spot. some with foam tape for a lift..

Top right corner I used rusty bells [ I bought them like that]
silver ribbon tied in a bow and a couple of simple leaves..

Our favourite Merry Christmas die, the best ever, cut in a dusky pink foil cardstock.

Some, pretty pink bubble gems, scattered about..

Then needed a pinecone, I shared these the other day, not real, they are paper.

It's going here..

and there you go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

Finely crafted... great card.
Yes, I also have to think about Christmas... because I'm still enjoying autumn here, it came late this year and stays long... and I'm happy... it looks so beautiful outside.
The Christmas markets start from November 23rd... then at the latest I will get the Christmas feeling.
A warm greeting to you from Viola
