Shaped Christmas Card

Morning everyone, I was off to an early start today as I had to take my daughter to the station for the 8 o'clock train to work so there was a bit of a queue for the bathroom today!
I can't believe that it's Friday again - don't know where the week went although I have been busy with making samples for Nikky who's appearing on Create and Craft on 23 November with the new Pretty Tuff CD.
This week's challenge at Polka Doodles has been chosen by Ruth so you can maybe guess that the theme is Christmas but this has a twist as she would like to see a Shaped Christmas Card.
I've chosen a favourite shape of mine at the moment which gives some dimension to the card but still fits easily in an envelope.

All elements on my card come from the Magical Winter CD Collection, apart from the green glitter card which you may need to click on the pic to see properly.
I covered my main card base with the pretty dotty paper then made the central stand up panel with the gorgeous stitched look kraft paper and a cute eskimo topper.
I simply added a glittery border strip, some of the cut out embellishments and a lovely sentiment from the CD - simples!
If you haven't yet checked out this fabulous 2 CD collection, it's worth your while to hop over and take a look at the gallery to see all the wonderful creations that can be made, some in a matter of minutes which we all need when trying to get all the Christmas cards done!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Paper Play - Shaped Cards
Creatalicious - Christmas with Sparkle (you may need to click on the pic to see mine)
Digital Tuesday - Christmas Time

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
Fliss xx
