Die Cut Dreams - Challenge #19

The challenge this week at Die Cut Dreams has been set by our lovely Susie and she has chosen the theme of Winter Wonderland, another excuse for me to crack on with my Christmas cards and Lili of the Valley would like to see a Christmas Card for a Child.

I couldn´t wait to ink up Miki & Kimi, from Lili of the Valley when they landed in my mailbox the other day. I have coloured them with my copics and used flowersoft for the fur trims. The border is a beautiful old gold ribbon which my dear friend Bev brought over a couple of years ago and I have cut into this for the first time - good aren´t I ... ooh it is so strokeable but really should be used. I couldn´t believe my luck when I found some lovely matching card too to make up my nestie snowflake and sizzlet sentiment.
