Make It Crafty Christmas card

Hi Crafty friends,

I must confess I am pretty proud of my colouring here, this is the first time I have attempted to colour such an intricate image and as I'm so far removed from an artist I think I did pretty well, hope that doesn't sound conceited hehe.

FWAB products:      Trent's fence (part of)
Other products:         Metal corners from Live & Love Crafts
