Pion Design Papers Christmas Card


Just recently I discovered the stunning papers from the Swedish Company Pion Design. In the UK they are available from Dies to Die for. They are just the most beautiful, soft papers.
Here is a Christmas card made with the papers which I am going to put in for the Swedish (I think) Challenge Blog "Sketchy Colours". Here are some more views from the inside etc.



The tags are from the paper collection. I followed the sketch pretty much using nestability die cuts and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and my local craft shop. The little angel image was flying around in my stash...

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
