Christmas Card Club

Hi all,
Well Christmas has been and gone and it's time to.......
Make my Christmas cards!
For next Christmas.
This year I am definitely going to be organised and get them all done well in advance so no-one misses out.
Well that's the theory anyway.
So over at the Christmas Card Club it is Carol's turn to start the ball rolling and her theme is:
NO DESIGNER PAPERS!
When I first saw the challenge I thought I would struggle but then I remembered I had bought a new Indigo Blu stamp set and my new Pan Pastels.
So I set to work and here is what I came up with!
I used my Pan Pastels to do the background and then stamped the image (the sleigh image) in black Versafine.  Then I used my Clarity Stamp Christmas Trees stamp and stamped that below.
Then I cut the card into three pieces and backed it onto some dark navy card.
Then stuck these onto a white card base. 
To finish off, I added a piece of Twas the Night ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
So, there you go then, no designer papers. Woohoo.
Right I'm off to make my next Christmas Card now!
