St Lukes Mid Month Reminder

Hello Friends!
Just a quick post from me to remind you that this months challenge at St Lukes  
is halfway through (well almost). As it`s November we want you to share your Christmas cards with us and don`t forget we have a fantastic prize for the winner from Lili of the Valley too.
We would also be extremely grateful if you could donate your card to this worthy cause. There is going to be a Chritmas fayre on the 27th November where Tara will be selling all the donated cards. Details are on the main blog.
Just to get you in the mood I`ve made this card.
Cream pearlescent card cut to make a 5x5. I`ve used DP from Papermania Silent Night Collection matted onto burgundy card. On the green paper I`ve stamped and embossed in gold a Holly Flourish stamp from Inkadinkado in top left and bottom right corners.I`ve also swiped my embossing pad along the edges and embossed in gold.
The text paper has some gold foiling on and is matted onto burgundy card that has been punched with a MS border punch.
I`ve added a ribbon and bow which match perfectly with the lattering on the text paper, along with a die cut star which I`ve glittered in gold and some gold cord.
The sentiment is by Anita`s, also stamped and embossed in gold and cut out with a nestie circle and matted onto burgundy card cut out with a nestie scalloped circle.
As all the DP and some of the card is from my snippet box, I`m also entering this one into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge # 45. I haven`t had the chance to join in with Jules for a couple of weeks so I was determined to get one in early this week. You never know I might even got another one done...

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
