A Merry Christmas Birthday

One more sleep to go!! Are you all ready? I think I am, just about. Thank you to everyone who left birthday messages for me on Sunday.
Today I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and say Happy Birthday to my brother. I'd just turned five when he was born (quite a few years ago) on Christmas Eve - and I thought he was the best Christmas present a little girl could receive. We have a tradition these days where I make Christopher a birthday card with a lovely lady on it. This is the card I've made for him.
I kept the card quite simple as he will probably only notice the pretty lady on it.

I started by covering a card blank with gold mirri and layering a square of green card. The paper is from Dovecraft's Twelve Days of Christmas paper pack and I matted that on gold mirri too. I used a Britannia die set and some X-cut dies to create the sentiment circle and added a bow.

This fabulous image is a stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps and is available in rubber and digi format. She is Kristy  by Joanne Schempp and I coloured her with Polychromos. I used distress ink around the image and matted and layered it onto green card and gold mirri card. I wrapped a short piece of ribbon around a top corner and added a matching bow.

I used a Marianne die to cut three branches from green card and then embellished them with lots of Frantage. I added another bow and finished the card with three red faux pearls.

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support throughout this year and I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and that Santa is very kind to you. I bet you don't get a baby brother though!
