A Blue Christmas....

Hi hope you are all having a great day!   Work was a bit stressful today so escaped into
my craft room when I got home!!!
I made this card with a Lili of the Valley Stamp called 'All Wrapped Up'.
I also used the Cheery Lyn French Pastry Die which is a favourite now!
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley again.
The papers are from Pink Petticoat.







I'd like to enter this card into two challenges.
The first is Sweet Stamps Blog for which the theme this week is Winter Blues and I think this card fits perfectly!!
The second challenge is Craft your passion blog for which the theme is Christmas in July!

Hi Catherine,

Such a beautiful Christmas card using one of my favourite stamps. I love the shades of blue you've used.

I'm so wound up, stressed and tired when I get in from work that I just can't get creative at all. Mind you, I struggle at the best of times!
