The Day Before Xmas.

Hello, crafty bloggers.
I have made another Christmas card featuring The Day Before Xmas.
I think this is Edwin!!!
This is the last Christmas card for this year?
I have made this card is for my beautiful Mum.
 I have made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate
frilly frames #2.
The papers are Maja Design "It's Christmas Time" from Dies To Die For.
I have placed 16mm white Guipure lace across the bottom. The lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
I stamped The Day before Xmas onto Neenah cardstock with Memento rich cocoa ink and coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.
The arched window die is Marianne Design. I fell in love with the die when I saw
Debbie Dolphin's creation on her blog
I bought the arched window from Grafton Crafts
I have coated the arch window with Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts.  
I used the die cuts from the window pane to make the brick wall and inked around the edge of each brick with Tim holtz tea dye distress ink
I have placed a piece of cheesecloth behind the window at the top.
The lovely fence and spruce firs are Doohickey. I inked the edges of the trees and fence with tea dye distress ink and covered them in Snow~Tex.
The white resin dove is from Hobbycraft.
I computer generated the sentiment using Harrington Font 14 in word and inked the edges on both sides with tea dye distress ink I then rolled each end with a knitting needle to make a scroll.
For the flower arrangement I have used a curly ivory rose and 25mm olive green roses from
White chrysanthemums and white stamens from The Ribbon Girl.
White flower spray, white poppies and pine cones from Live & Love Crafts. My super bloggy friend sent me the pine cones.
I have coated the cones with Snow~Tex.
The foliage in between the arrangement are Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches.
The deer is Marianne Design. I have inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.
I added ArtDeco glamour dust to Edwins hat and dotted his cheeks with a
Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I have placed some tiny white rhinestones on the tree and placed a tiny yellow rhinestone to each of the stars.
The card at an angle.
Inside the card is decorated.
I hope you like my Mum's Christmas card?
I am entering my creation into the following super challenges.
Thank you for stopping by and big thanks for all the lovely comments.
Merry Christmas.
Crafty hugs.
