Music, Roses and Christmas

Howdy all!I have another fabulous card made using one of the newest Flourishes September releases... That's a Wrap!

I chose to combine three challenges for my card today.

The first one is to use the Merry Monday Challenge #75;
use red, dark brown, vanilla and champagne/gold with some shimmer!

You can notice the gold a little more in my close up...

I also combined my card with the Christmas Card Challenge #42 to use "music" and the There Shes Goes Challenge #225 to make a card or project that is either a present, or has a present on it!

This card was so easy to make too!  Minimal colouring and I just love the touch of gold!  It adds just that "little something" to make it a fabulous holiday card.  Thanks for stopping by today!


I received an Honourable Mention for this card for the Merry Monday's Challenge!  Thanks to Lesley and her team for a fabulous challenge!  I'll be playing again for sure!
