Some new bling and a bit of Christmas

Evening peeps! Hope you're all well!

Today, I've spent the day with my wonderful hubby, who has only gone and bought me a beautiful diamond eternity ring!!! Oh I can tell you, there's lots of bling and sparkle in our house tonight! I am a happy bunny ;) 

Anyway, onto the crafting... I've made another Christmas card hooray! This one is using the sketch from Totally Gorjuss, which is just so easy to work with (in my opinion). I've used a cute Lili of the Valley stamp, coloured with pencils on kraft card (I do like the effect this gives).  The christmassy background paper is from K & Co. Sorry but the photo isn't great, I hate taking pics under artificial light!

I'm entering the challenges at:
Totally Gorjuss - Sketch
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Winter Holiday Sentiments

Have a lovely evening, I will be spending the evening watching my ring sparkle lol ;)
