Christmas cards

I've Finally managed to design and list some Christmas cards in my Folksy shop. It's something I've been trying to get round to for weeks. I never know whether the design in my head will work in reality and can go through countless versions before I settle on a design. Lucky for me I only did about two versions of the tree and three of the star until I was happy.

I've steered away from traditional colours and opted for a beautiful colour combination of plum, olive and teal.
