It seemed like a good idea....

...at the time - honest, it did! The current challenge at Bah! Humbug! is paper weaving - something I haven't done for ages but always enjoyed. This time I decided to do something a bit different and see if I could do it digitally in photoshop. This is because I'm determined to learn how to use as much of what photoshop has to offer as I can. The end result I am thrilled with, but by 'eck I could've made a couple of dozen in the same time doing it the old fashioned way! I'll be quicker next time I want to do it because I know what I'm doing now - says she more in hope than confidence! All the papers are from Crafty Ann's as is the central topper which is the silver Poinsettia with script and 'embossed' edge from the new Metallics Range (don't forget these are on  bogof until the end of the month). I printed it out twice (cropping it so that I didn't have to waste ink printing what I didn't need) and cut out the poinsettia to layer it up. I've backed this with silver mirri card to give the card a little more oomph - well, it is for Christmas! I've finished it off with some silver glitter peel offs in the two corners and one in the middle of the poinsettia. I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
