Merry Little Christmas!

Happy Halloween... I have my cauldron of sweeties and decorations at the ready.  Every year we have an abundance of little monsters and witches, all excited, dressed up in their spooky finery and I absolutely love seeing their faces as they squeal 'Trick or Treat' - innocence is priceless :)

So after all my Halloween/Birthday cards of late, I've moved onto Christmas cards.  I have to admit I had a loss of mojo for this card, I think I'm still in my All Hallows mood.

I used Tim Holtz poinsettia and reindeer die as the main focal points and I did, very reluctantly I might add, cut into my First Edition Wild at Heart paper pad for the poinsettia.  I used a sheet of old music paper for the reindeer but matted onto 2 lots of kraft cardstock because its really flimsy paper.  Added some Stickles and some teeny tiny die cut stars to finish.
