A Bakers Dozen.

On the Thireenth Day of Christmas my True Love said to me....................................

Well I had to have a Bakers Dozen didn't I !!!!!!

This card came about because I was going to use the base design paper on the post below but decided after I had cut it that the horizontal lines were too fussy for the christmas tree brads. 
It lay discarded on my desk along with the check border and as the two papers looked good together I used them for this. I would normally make my own flowers but these roses were sent as a gift from America so it would have been rude not to use them especially as they went so well with the papers.

I gave the roses a dusting of pearlescent chalk which you can just about see in the close up below.

Entering into the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop: Use your snippets. #53  (Red check paper and rose leaves).
Crafty Hazel Nuts: Make a Christmas Card for next Yr.
Make it Monday: #121 Anything goes.

Now as I will be running around like a headless chicken next December looking for the 13 cards I just know that I made in readness last December, I will tell you were I'm putting them. They are in the Christmas Drawer!!! Someone please tell me when I ask!

What a beautiful card. I saw it on Make it Monday.

Lisa Minckler said... crack me up and I feel so much better now. 4 days after Christmas I found a box of already made cards that I put in a special box in a special place I would never forget....pffft! At least Christmas cards don't have an expiring shelf life date.
Your card is fabulous and I love that you held on to the parts so they could all come together beautifully!

Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
Happy Crafting...
