Christmas Circles

 Morning and I have finally made a Christmas card well three actually but will save those for later.

I used the Christmas Circles stamp from Chocolate Baroque coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on the berries-with inspiration from Tracy Evans.

Die-cut with Creative Dies to add a frame and stamped foliage from a Pink Frog set and added a twine bow.

A gorgeous traditional Christmas card, I adore the little robin image - I may have mentioned before that my husband just loves a robin on his Christmas card. I really like that pine needle stamp, it looks so effective and works perfectly with the robin and berries.
