Jovial.

Am trying very hard to keep my feet firmly on the ground and steer my thoughts towards Christmas as opposed to nice new sofas and light fittings.
So last night I put away my newly purchased copy of 'Ideal Homes' (lol) and made a couple of cards!
I bought a lovely Basic Grey paper pack called 'Jovial' whilst at the NEC and the paper on this card is from that.
This was really a 'basic' card too! I thought the paper was far too pretty to cover it with anything so I just matted it onto green card, added a couple of silk poinsettias suitably dusted with some fine glitter, a small red greetings tag (and a peel off - can't remember the last time I used peel offs!), and a green and gold organza ribbon to hold it all together, secured with a black brad.

You're right.....this is a classic example that if you find a great paper, you don't need a lot to create a beautiful card. Great job. Thanks for joining us at OSAAT.
