Wild Orchid Crafts - Christmas Theme!

Hi!  I had the best weekend!!!! You want to know why? haha!  Because my baby Wade, came home from college to see us and brought his very sweet girlfriend with him.  We had a wonderful time visiting with them.  Now, I am just a little sad to see him go back!  Oh well, I will see him in a few weeks for a family wedding!  On to my card!!!


This week at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge we have the super fun theme of "CHRISTMAS".

 My Christmas decorations in my home are burgundys and golds so I LOVE using burgundy on my cards.  Something about the richness of the color!  Here I use the gorgeous Burgundy Curly Rose and 15mm Olive and  Cream Open Roses placed in a mix of Holly leaves from various dies and punches.

Here is a detailed picture of the Natural Cotton Lace and the Raffia Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The little circle sentiment is something from the dollar bin at Michaels. haha

I colored the sweet Silver Fairy from Whimsy Stamps with distress inks. You can find her HERE in rubber now!!!  The papers are from IOD and I LOVE them!  The gold accents are a Spellbinders set called Parisian Accents.
Please be sure to go see that all the other DT have come up with!  

Thank you so much for visiting me!

Hugs, Dena
