A Girly Christmas Card

(Hi all, just a quick reminder that my Birthday Candy is still up for grabs here!)
At last I have managed to get my competition entry done for the 
November Comp over at Cardmaking Downloads
The November theme was for Christmas! 
You must use a download from either Cardmaking Downloads or Scrapbookingmad to enter
 but there are many different styles of downloads to choose from!
I used a combination of two downloads designed by Elaine Hayhoe. 
I love the non traditional colours she has used and, as intend this card to go to a lady 
who lives on her own,  it's an ideal girly card!

The main download is the pyramage and border with the sentiment. 
The base card is made with backing papers which are included with this and another download. 
The only added elements are a few pieces of ribbon which came tied round 
cards & envelopes that I bought!

I did also use a border punch on the stop.
I quite like the effect of the matting and layering under the punched section

Have entered this into the  2 Sisters Challenge Blog  Challenge#15
