Victorian Christmas

Hello friends
It's the weekend!
I've written a list of all what I want to achieve this weekend, it runs to two pages -
do you think I'm being a little ambitious!?
Today's crafty offering is one of the cards I produced using the vintage postcards/images.
I kept it simple because at the time there was the possibility that these would be produced on a larger scale.
The very lovely Layered Poinsettia features, just using the smaller dies. 
Obviously you can shape the petals, roll etc - purely personal choice.
The picture is framed with Lattice Rectangles (I cut the frame aperture with Classic Rectangles).
Glad you all liked yesterday's project - Sarah has asked whether I mind if she makes something similar with her Rainbow Group - yes, please do.  I am always delighted if I have been an inspiration with my projects,
always feel free to share photos with me if you wish.
Have a good Saturday - I hope it is a crafty one.
Take care.

Hi Christine, Lovely card and the vintage print is so cute, not sure if I would have used pink though.
Not a crafty day for me I'm afraid, my lovely old faithful border collie was taken ill yesterday, so its been trips to the vets,he's a real poorly boy so were giving him lots of TLC.

This is a corker Christine - I love the different colours - such a change from the traditional ones. The little poinsettias are also looking beautiful and the 'torchon' bobbin lace is amazing.
