Denise Ann's Christmas Collection

Hi Ladies
Denise Ann's collection of projects is really fantastic - I was very surprised when I saw her request for papers - she used the images from the Vintage Christmas ATC papers.

Her first project is a beautiful card with a dark blue border punched cardstock & embellished with reds & gold & with green to accent the little girl's coat

Then the following 2 tags:  The first one is in the traditional Christmas colours of red & green with a jingle bell

The second tag is in the cooler colours of a cold blue Christmas with icy snowflakes & glitter

 She then turned her attention to an Explosion card - again using a dark blue border punched cardstock but with her own paper - Santa's Garden - stunning & exciting. She used the Santa section in the base of the card & the sky sections of the paper in the inside of the explosion pieces

And then to finish her Christmas Collection, another beautiful card:  - this time using 1 of her own papers & a round lacy doily as backgrounds to the distressed & glittered image; glittered icy snowflakes, lace, muslin, icy flourishes & white flowers & leaves are used as embellishments
