To Santa

Hi Everyone,

I made this card over a week ago and I have forgotten to post it. What am I like.

I've used a few of my new favourtie Marianne Design Dies, just look at that Holly, isn't it fabulous, in fact almost all of this card is Marianne Designs.

I have done some fancy stitching on my sewing machine.

The image is Marianne Designs Eline's Mailbox EC0140.  I have coloured with my trusty copic markers and I have paper pieced the little birdie's belly using Marianne Designs Paper.

Here's a close up of the Holly and the Berries.  I actually like how I've taken this photo, just can't remember what settings I used :(
