Holiday Wishes - Pinecones

Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge this week is to make a Christmas card with three of something on it.  I chose to use three pieces of red bling.

To make the card I used this pretty pine cone image by Fred, She Said Design along with some glittery pattern paper. I coloured the images completely with tea dyed distress ink and then added glitter to the pine cones to give them a snowy effect. 

To complete my card I added a reversible red/green ribbon, my bling and a printed sentiment that I altered. Hope you enjoy my card and have a fantastic week.
