CD Sunday - 'Christmas' chosen by Meg

Our theme for the next two weeks very appropriately is 'Christmas'.  If you are like me you are trying to get most of them done before it all becomes too much.

For my card for this challenge I used a background of delicate Mistletoe leaves and berries from a  Joanna Sheen CD - Victorian Xmas Cards.  It matched the new die I bought so perfectly that it was a 'must use'.

Here is the card:

I used white half pearls as the Mistletoe berries and hopefully the green card that I chose is a good colour for Mistletoe. Sometimes the leaves have a strong yellow tinge but I hadn't got a sheet that colour.

Whilst finding out about Mistletoe I found these facts:

"Mistletoe is toxic to people, but the berries and leaves provide high-protein food for many animals. Many bird species rely on mistletoe for food and nesting material. Butterflies lay their eggs on the plants and use the nectar as food. Mistletoe is also an important pollen and nectar plant for bees."

I like the simplicity of the card and may well make some more. As long as those to whom I send them  don't live next door to each other no one will know!

Please come and join us in our challenge. You only need to add a little something from a CD to your card and we would love to see it.  But no more than three entries per person.
Don't forget that we now are on Facebook and you can read all about us here and the link to CD Sunday is on my sidebar.

Have fun and til the next time
