Flowering Poinsettia

Another quick card for the 'C' pile using a topper from a sheet by Craft Creations Ltd.
and Xcut Nestie 'Ornate Frame'.

The backing paper is a 12" x12" sheet sent to me by a blogging friend from America.
Fabric ivy leaves were  leftover snippets and the ribbon and pearls from my stash.

  26. You are a Christmas card making Queen!

    Great card and pretty image Mrs A. What is the C pile?

    I brought a ferret from the Lowther Show ferret races but it escaped into Miss's purse...I think it is loose in the playground! Mr Scrappymo sez it wouldn't be too hard to find as it is a bit stinky!
    Kep an eye out for it!
