Traditional Christmas at Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, we've got a fab challenge over at
Polkadoodles and our theme is 'Traditional Christmas' so its a really easy one to join in! Our lucky winner will receive a voucher to spend in the Polkadoodles store so I hope you're going to play along. 

I've been a bit pushed for time recently, between work and home I haven't had a lot of time to craft so I decided to print out lots of goodies from the Picknix 3 Nordic Winter collection and made a quick and easy card. I die cut my card blank and backing paper and distressed everything with Gathered Twigs distress ink. I used one of the gorgeous frames from the collection and layered it up over one of the gorgeous chalkboard sentiments and then went to town cutting out lots of embellies - stars, burlap hearts etc, adding a bit of glamour dust for some Christmassy sparkle.

I added some hessian, seambinding ribbon ,a little brass button and a few faux pearls to finish off. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: anything goes with a twist of Christmas
A Snowflakes Promise: anything Christmas or Winter
Come and Get It: anything goes with a sentiment
Inky Chicks: Merry Christmas
Paper Shelter: A Christmas Card
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Quirky Crafts: anything Christmas

Thanks so much for visiting today
