Guess what?  I've only gone and bought another bargain Docrafts pack!  I bought the gorgeous Henbury Lane Poinsettia collectors pack when it was released a couple of years ago, but, when I saw it on sale for £3.49 and the matching stamps for £2.49, I just couldn't resist.  I'd used most of the original pack up and loved it and I've really enjoyed playing with it again.  I've decided to make 5x7 kraft cards with this pack for my neighbours, so this will be the first of many!
Everything for this card, apart from the ribbon, gems, cones and fir branch came from the collectors pack.  I just love the rich raspberry colour in the image and papers.
The cones and fir sprig........well....... emmmm........ another new purchase.  A stunning new Spellbinders set of autumn foliage.  It is to die for!  The cones were cut from kraft and inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, expect to see these cropping up on lots of my future projects, I love 'em!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
My Mum's Craft Shop - #69 - Christmas
Poodle's Parlour -  die cuts
Sweet Sketch - #166 - sketch, I flipped it so the embellishment is on the right
