Well, I’ve been making a concerted effort recently to use up some of the digi images and paper I seem to collect but never use.  My Halloween card (posted on Saturday) used all digi paper downloads, and this card uses a stunning freebie image I came across.  You can still get it but it’s no longer free.  It’s an Inklined image from the talented team of Jak Heath and crew, their digis are available to buy from Imag-e-nation, and if you sign up for Imag-e-nation’s newsletter they send you details every Friday of a free digi, that’s how I cam by this beautiful Christmas Wreath that I’ve used here.

So, my card.  It was late when I finished this last night so my photography isn’t good, it probably wouldn’t have been too bad but I’d used Fiskars Glitter Pens to colour the image in with and the camera flash kept catching it unfortunately, I’ll try and get a better photo when I get home from work today.  I did this one in very traditional colours but I’ve printed four of these images out and I think I’d like to do one in non-traditional colours of lilac and purple next.  Behind the little spray of home made flowers are some punches green leaves and top right there are some red gems but you can hardly see them unfortunately!!

*** EDIT – Added new photos!***
