Untraditional Christmas

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my husband for the awful cold he gave me which just so happened to start with a sore throat yesterday, it didn't stop me from going to Ally Pally but with the huge crowds (now I know why I like Sundays) I gave up looking at stuff and relied on my friends to help find stuff on my list and they know me so well so they found other stuff I like too.
Also a big wave to my blogging pals who popped by and said Hello.
It's a good job I made this card ready for today cos I don't think I will be feeling like doing much today since I feel yuck.
Its for LOTV challenge of an Untraditional Colours Christmas Card, pretty sure this purple paper from Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather fits the bill. All the usual suspects are here, bit of ribbon, MS snowflake punches, oval sentiment and some flower soft for her hat and scarf.

  39. Hello, your cards are gorgous, but how do you mold your decoupage? when i do it they seem to get all creased around the edges, maybe im a bit too robust!? I would appreciate the tip. Beautiful. Melx
