Lots of spots

     My starting point this week was a sketch from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown followed by 'lots of spots' from Winter Wonderland and CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge is to use the word 'Christmas' on the front of your card.
    I began by embossing a large DL card blank with a snowfall folder, my first spots. Then I found a spotty paper that has trees with spots on too. There is a small scalloped edge at the bottom which I managed to do with my trimmer, I've never used that blade before, it's quite nice.
 
   The green paper has 'Merry Christmas' all over it so I cut a piece out and mounted it on silver mirri card. The top 'Christmas' has had Glossy Accents added to it to bring it out a little. There are three brads added to the card to finish it off.
   My mojo is on a go slow this week but I'm hoping it will be back in full force next week!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use 'Christmas' on the front
Winter Wonderland - Lots of Spots
