A Victorian Christmas

You will be pleased to know that I am getting to the end of my collection of
cards that feature 'that' poinsettia die and matching embossing folder.

I have to admit I was rather chuffed at how this card turned out. The papers
remind me of Victorian style wallpaper that can often be seen in old movies
and books. I really must use that branch die more is so versatile.

Those tiny little 'pinecones' are from a tree we planted in one of our 
front paddocks many years ago.

For a change, I did not adhere a die-cut panel in the inside of the card,
but wrote my personal message directly on the DP.

Dies - Tim Holtz (Sissix) Tattered Poinsettia; Memory Box Woodland Branch 
Embossing - Tim Holtz (Sizzix) Texture Fades Textured Poinsettia Pattern Set
Papers - Kaisercraft Turtle Dove
Sentiment - Kaisercraft Turtle Dove
Ink for Sponging - Distress Inks
Gold cord, beads, and 'pine cones' are from my junk stash
