I have used a digital paper from PixelScrapper.  I added some grosgrain ribbon across the card.  The image is called Tulip Border from Sheepski Designs and is coloured with copic markers.  I also added some gemstones and a red satin ribbon bow.

Happy Holidays

It is a real wintry day here today.  I'm driving up to a Papercraft Expo today and it is pouring rain - and I hate driving in the rain.  I'm looking forward to getting lots of inspiration and buying lots of crafty items at the expo though.
