I'm thinking a Victorian Christmas Spellbinder style.

Morning back today with another card for you and this time I was thinking vintage Victorian but obviously with a touch of Spellbinders, well it would be rude not to!

For this card I have used Spellbinder dies Gold labels four and Layered Poinsettia (one of my all time favourite dies).  The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch, the paper is by Docrafts At Christmas, the sentiment stamp is from Woodware Wishing you, with bling and ribbon from my stash.
I think this paper gives a classic style with the added dark side, I like it as it's a little different from the normal cute Christmas cards.

I want to give a big "toot, toot" to all my crafting pals down in Coventry today and tomorrow for the big Ranger event with Tim Holtz courtesy of Personal Impressions.  I hope you all have a super day and look forwards to hearing all about it.  I have been lucky in the past to attend a couple of these events and have always thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I know you guys will too.  He is such a great teacher with a wicked sense of humour.  Have fun!

Meanwhile back in my little world today I have a bespoke card to finish from yesterday then I shall be starting my designing for the up and coming retreat next month at The Papeterie....what will we be doing?! 
That would be telling, I will say one thing......Spellbinders and ink will be included!

Have a super Wednesday everyone no matter what you are up to, oh and happy crafting!
