Trees, swirls and snowflakes

I managed to get the Marianne Christmas tree die off e-bay and it was going on my card whether it worked or not lucky for me it doesn't look too bad. I balanced it by using the gold for the Magnolia swirl.
My card is for Cute Card Thursday which is a sketch from Lynn wasn't sure to begin with but I think it worked out fine.
The different corners were an accident cos I couldn't chose which one so I cut out one of each and put them on the card to see which one and decided I liked them both.
I've used James the bear from LOTV and since its a Christmas cards I can enter it this weeks challenge which is Winter Wonderland.

 More cards have arrived theses are from Jane, Nat and Marcea.


These are the last, a couple were missed when I photo the others.

Well the weekend looks like its going to be busy with Saturday I'm actually going out to celebrate my niece's birthday which is the day I thought she would be celebrating and Sunday I've a secret project with my Sister that needs to be finished before November.

Love your accidental corners! This is what my hubby would call a "happy accident"! What a wonderful card! Love the traditional colors! The Christmas tree, swirls and snowflakes are positioned perfectly! Love the snowflake paper. It's softness allows that adorable image to really stand out! Wonderful card!
