Natural Noel

When I saw this gorgeous inpiration picture over at the Jingle Belles blog, I just knew I had to play along.

This seemed like a perfect opportunity to use a Chrissie embroidery stencil from Joy!crafts that I had received as a birthday present well over a year ago. So last weekend, I did all the embroidering. That is, after I had coloured some white cardstock with a Spectrum Noir pen, because I did not have any CS in the right colour, even though I was convinced I had some.

When I went looking for the PP I wanted to use, it finally dawned on me that I should have been looking for the few sheets of Bazzill CS that I bought last year. If you look closely, you will see that the card itself is a shade lighter than my topper. Anyway, the PP is BoBunny, the lace is Marianne Design and the sentiment is a peel-off.
