  8. So pretty Nicola! Beautiful papers and bows! So fancy and elegant!

  9. I LOVE that reindeer bauble... Never have seen that before. Keep the cards coming... You can never have too many. Gorgeous card!!!

  10. This is an absolute beauty Nicola ! I love every bit and pieces of it, first of all the wonderful blue celadon colour under "merry Xmas" which develops a so interesting contrast with the deep dark and rich red of the velvet ribbon and of the deers. And this crown of deers is so full of mouvement, graceful and elegant. You managed brilliantly to create a perfect balance between red tones and blue hues. I also payed attention to the pieces papers printed with two different styles of writing, the medieval looking one and the more modern one, though still evoking past centuries. Well, I do love this card ! Have a nice day. Very cold and very sunny here in France. Véronique.

  11. A wonderful card with lots of lovely details. Thank you for joining us over at Scrap & Craft Inspiration. Good luck!
    Hugs Suzi
