Image is called Noel Joy from Stampavie, it has been coloured in with Promarkers and touched up with Polar White Flowersoft and Glamour Dust glitter for a little sparkle around the cuffs, collar, base of coat and beneath her boots to give the impression of snow. I have added red seed beads to create the holly berries on her hat.

Backing papers are from Dove Craft 'Noel' paperstack. The edges have been distressed using Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distressing Ink.

The gold swirls have been created from a Marianne Design die cut.

The red ribbon flowers and the sentiment have been bought from our local craft shop, Bee Crafty.

I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page called Scallop 3 dot set to create the effect on the green card.

The pins have been made by a fellow crafter, Karen Liddle.

Ribbon and gems are from my stash.


  1. Just gorgeous, really delightful Georgie. The greens with the red are so Christmassy and the lace really lifts it. I love the image and the inked edges. So much detail with the swirls, roses, pins and ticket - what a great job.
    Hope you are well and not working too hard.
    Take care. Luv Brenda xxx
