Quick Christmas card

I just whipped two of these up, using Penny Black Stickeroos and some papers that, in my humble opinion, seemed made for the image:
Really fast, once I sorted out stuff it seemed best to really let the image and papers do most of the work:)

I used:

- 6" x 6" cream linen card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Joy to the World' Christmas set. I have to say, I've only found a few PB Christmas Stickeroo sheets to choose from so I hope they bring more out. One hint if you use Stickeroos is to stick the peel off image onto backing card or paper, however you intend to use it, before trimming the backing to size - they really are very sticky and you don't get a second chance :)

- red card from the snippets folder

- backing paper from a really bright and different set by Jennifer Ellory called Berry Merry, free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine last Christmas

- cream card also from snippets folder, punched down each side using a very old Fiskars border punch just so the organza ribbon wouldn't get lost with the bright background, shame on me, I keep forgetting these punches

- lime green organza ribbon from the ribbon box

Two more for the Christmas card box and I'd like to enter this into Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge which is not to use the word Christmas in your greeting/sentiment this week. There's a new challenge over at Hazel's tomorrow don't forget :)

Friday - and a long weekend beckons too :)
