Possibly the last Christmas card ?

This is a card I've made for my Mum, she's been to France with us several times so I knew she would love the french wording. I'm also putting it forward for the following challenges :

I stamped the main image, which is from a Katzelkraft set, with Archival black ink onto Basic Grey paper. Then I stamped the snowflakes around the edge with Versamagic ink, Aloe Vera. The background paper is also Basic Grey and it's mounted on Bazill card.

The sentiment was also stamped with Archival black ink then I cut it out with a Fancy Tags Spellbinder die. Before removing the die I chalked over the top and rather than throwing away the off cuts I used them in the corners of the green Bazill card. The green Bazill card has been embossed using the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder.

I've had a really lovely day today, not only because I've won a GDT spot on Die Cut Dreams, but also I've spent a very relaxing afternoon, having afternoon tea at a local hotel. It's a really old building and they've decorated it beautfully and we sat in front of the fire eating small sandwiches and cakes. Then to top it all off I've just discovered that I've won Carols Mini Advent Candy for yesterday !
Thanks for looking
