Christmas Ferns

I've tried something a bit different with this Christmas card - maybe you can tell me if you think it's ok or not.  I've used muted greens and browns as my theme rather than traditional or bright colours.

The image I've used is Aurora Woods from Ching-Chou Kuik.

It's been coloured with ProMarkers, cut out with a Spellbinders die and some antique linen ink applied at the edges to subdue the white.  I've then used another larger oval die and some black card stock to mount the image onto.

The papers are from Lili of the Valley and First Edition.

My bits of embellishments comprise of a chipboard sentiment from Hobby Craft in its natural state as I thought it went well with the card theme.  Some wooden snow flakes and gems also from Hobby Craft.

So there you go a bit different but I think it works ok
