Christmas Cones

I'm still on target for a Christmas card a week!  I treated myself to the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die yesterday and was itching to play with it.  It had been on my wish list for ages and when I went to my local craft shop yesterday, there it was, so I just had to have it!  When I showed the card to my hubby he thought that they were real cones!
I decided to make quite a simple card.  After I made the cones I accented them with Pinflair Ice Diamond to add a touch of frost.  The foliage is from the same die and has been cut from Core'dinations.
The shaped blank is from Craftwork Cards.  The base mat is linen textured card which has been punched at the corners with a Martha Stewart punch.  I then cut two mats with Nesties from pearl card and simply layered up.
The sentiment is a foiled die cut from Papermania and the pearls are Papermania too.
Some ribbon and a bow and that's it finished.


I am entering this card in the following challenge -
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - #61 - ribbons and/or charm
