This image was still sat on my desk from when I was picking out 2 designs for Sarn's challenge. I mainly didn't use it because I couldn't find another to match it to.
Nearly put it away when another challenge came up that it suited perfectly so here it is.
Image is by LOTV Art Pad Festive foliage
and comes ready coloured. Phew!
Simply trimmed the image to fit and edged with Distress ink .
Die is Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles.
 Whole  sheets of Red and green card from stash
along with pearls and twine.
Sentiment cut using Britannia  word dies from a snippet of  separate red card.

Inside finished with the same die and left blank for verse to be added.
