more christmas paper-Sketch N Stash challenge+Pear Tree Designs challenge+Basicgrey challenge

Yyyooohhhhoooo everyone it me again, well I had a nice surprise yesterday my gorgeous Phil had a few days holiday to take so took them and arrived home without telling me, almost giving me a heart attack in the process mind ya lol...so many long lunches, strolls and you never know maybe a bit of shopping although I didn't tell him that bless him and chilling ahead for the rest of the week, don't you love it when things like that happen which they very rarely do to me...my card for today is using another Christmas paper, this is Basicgrey Wassail Olive branch paper and I used this amazing stamp from Sugar Nellie coloured with Distress inks...shes called Faith, isn't she beautiful...I love these monochromatic colours don't you...I added some velvet ribbon and flowers from Wild Orchid crafts to finish, the sketch is from Sketch and Stash, my stash is the new stamp and unused paper I'm also entering this for the Pear Tree Designs flowers challenge and Basicgrey flower power challenge too...for all those people looking for the candy winner its just below...enjoy the rest of your day everyone
