A Present For Robin

I have a super quick post today, as I want to catch the Papertake Weekly challenge before it closes. I saw a sketch that Dawny P did for their challenge and really wanted to have a go at using it. I had coloured up this sweet Lili of the Valley Christmas stamp recently, trying for once to get a head start on my Christmas card makes, so thought I'd make my first Christmas card of the year with Dawny's sketch. I've kept if totally CAS, no extra embellishments, AT ALL! Just some gorgeous new My Mind's Eye papers I bought the other day and a simple Swedish Christmas Greeting. I love how it turned out so without further ado, here it is.


Card Recipe:
Papers: My Mind's Eye - 'Tis The Season
Tartan Ribbon - Tesco Christmas 2012
Distressed Edges Ink: Bundled Sage
Stitched Square Die - Lil' Inkers
Sentiment: Bildmalarna

Here's a closer look at the sentiment
