No Pink or Purple!

Good morning everyone, its the weekend!!

Well, I had a good rummage around my old junk looking for an old Chinese vase, unfortunately I couldnt find anything!!  What an amazing story, finding an old vase and suddenly £43 million richer! Imagine that... sigh! 

Anyway, my card!  I've done another Christmas card, just a couple more to do and I think I should be done for this year.  I did this card for Kerry and the fabulous ladies over at the Ladybug Craft Challenge which this week is to use ribbon.  I hadn't used fireside Nikki yet so decided that would be nice to use.

I wanted to try something a little different so I dusted off my old eyelet setter and set eyelets down the side of the card to tie the ribbon through.  I scored down one side of the card and created a fold.  I set myself a second challenge which was to use NO PURPLE OR PINK!  and I managed it!  I actually used orange (gulp).  I also decorated the inside as well. 

I'm not sure the flower works but i was fiddling around with it so much last night I decided to stop, and leave it! 

I'm off now to paint boxes and photo books which I am doing as Christmas gifts, will post here for you to see when finished!

I am entering into the following challenges:
Have a great day
