"Elaine`s Christmas Card"

Hello Blog Friends, only 5 more sleeps!!   How are things going?? 
Thank you so much for taking time out to have a look to see what is going on in this little corner of Blogland. 
Don`t know about where you are but oh! my! goodness! it has been Dark, Extremely Wet, Windy and very miserable all day here.
Making this short as there is not that much "Free" time at the moment.
By the way both my neighbour and her friend were delighted with yesterday`s card.  Makes it all worth while.

This is a card for my friend Elaine and her Hubby Doug.

If  you are a follower of Sue Wilson`s Blog you will know where I got the idea that I used for this.

Base card 8 x 8
Sue`s "milk" coloured card  was used for all layers
First layer pierced round the perimeter
Next layer using "Garden Lattice" embossing board
Borders cut using Asian Accents.  Sue showed on C&C how to mitre the corners
I don`t have the Asian Motifs, I used Lacy Doily Square with an Asian Accent Circle
Layered Poinsettia inked in the Die using Walnut Stain
Computer generated greeting cut using Large Banner Die
Pearls from WOC

Elaine came tonight, I gave her the card so I can now show it
The pearl is over the "i" in Elaine suppose it is just a Tad too big but hey! Ho! it is done now.
Actually looks OK in reality.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for taking time to come and visit I really appreciate it

Patricia  xx
