Merry Christmas

Its been some time since i blogged but we have had a busy month.  Our site is now closed for the winter, so we are travelling around the UK at the moment visiting friend and family.
We are due to travel out to Spain for the winter on 25th November.
I only have a small selection of crafty goods with me and space is very limited in the motor home, but I wanted to join in the current challenges over at
  Less is More Metallics , 
Allsorts challenge CAS Christmas,

I started with a white card base, and added a die cut silver frame.  The ivy is from the Stampin Up Blended Season stamp set which I coloured with watercolour pens and blended with a brush before  fussy cutting. I created a frame from silver card stock, and used the co coordinating frame lits to cut some leaves from silver card. The sentiment is from the same set.
