Another Christmas creation...

Good morning, lovely peeps!  Half way through the week already!  Hope that you're all well and that the sun is shining wherever you are!
I'm back again today (boy am I on a roll!) to share a Christmas card that was inspired by Jen's brilliant Deconstructed Sketch #167.  I love a good sketch and often turn to Jen's blog to find inspiration for a layout and to see her amazing inspiration too!...
...For the papers I have used the Postbox plaid and flower paper, Lantern dots and Church snowflake, stripe and sentiment from my disc 12 Cards of Christmas.  I have inked all the edges and matted using various colour cardstocks.  The sentiment was cut using Spellbinders Labels Eleven (they're Mum's, but ssssh, don't say anything!) and I decorated with Spellbinders Pointsettia dies (they're Mum's too!), Cheery Lyn leaf border and All Occasions Dies Holly...
...I finished the inside with a printed insert from the Pointsettia design set and added my signature pearls to the front!  I really like the way this one turned out and I think this is another sketch that will be used regularly...thanks Jen!
I'll be back again with another creation tomorrow and have you noticed, even my photos are looking better thanks to the September sunshine!
Happy crafting! Hugs,
