Addicted to Stamps and More #51

Today at Addicted to Stamps and More our challenge is 'Anything Goes'. That means your creativity can have a free run!

I decided to use this challenge to make a Xmas card that my Mum had requested I make after seeing this Birthday card. She wanted me to make something similar but for Christmas. I am not so keen on repeating cards so this challenge gave me the little push I needed. And this is what I came up with:


I decided to go the make my cityscape red instead of black and have added a little line of glitter on the bottom to represent snow. I went for red twine and a bow, but the card seemed to need more. I added a single line to black and white twine and that filled the gap! And a few added gems to finish off the card. I also did another one similar to this but with snowflakes in the sky and different colours-forgot to take a photo though! So Mum's request granted and she will be sending them abroad-I did tell her that this is not London but she still thought it was a nice idea! Does anyone know where this is meant to be??

Time for you to pop over to Addicted to Stamps and More and check out the wonderful projects our DT have created, then time to join in the fun.
