I'm late ... I'm late . . .

for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens!  
New challenge begins tomorrow so I'd better make this fast!!  LOL!

Joan's Gardens challenge this week is/was:
  • Make a Christmas card
  • use the traditional red and green colors
  • have something from nature (pine cones, birds, flowers etc
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge.

Papers:  White cs, Kraft cs, BoBunny 'Father Christmas' dp
Accessories:  Spellbinder 'Fanciful Holiday' die (reindeer), Cheery Lynn Designs B323 'Winter Neighborhood Border die (new at Joan's Gardens), K&Co. holiday 3d sticker, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (trees, reindeer's eye & nose), Scribbles 3d paint - glittering crystal

Items in Bold Red were purchased at Joan's Gardens.

(If I had time to let the 'snow' dry before taking the photo, it would have sparkled really pretty!  That's what I get for waiting until the last minute!)  LOL!!

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by ... I'll be back to link to more challenges.
