James's Parcel


I actually made a card for a current challenge of Sketch Saturday, I'm quite impressed with myself now I need to remember to load it to the challenge.
I did change it a bit the fishtail banner along the bottom it has not fishtails I thought my bit of twine would work better without them.
I think the papers are a mixture of Stamping Up old papers and some old October Afternoon. Of course my holly is a Martha Stewart punch but I have added a leaf on a couple of them. The sentiment is another old stash from Craftwork card and the Stamping Up Oval and scallop oval punches to put the finishing touch.
Well I have few cards in my drafts and I need to get a few more in there, I've three busy weekends in front of me and I'll be catching up on myself.
