country christmas

sometimes I do get some very odd requests for cards
this one was
I  want a christmas card, for my parents who like countryside and shooting????
this really got my brain going
and in the end decided to do a search on google to find an image as I was stuck
I layered red, gold and patterened (free with a mag) papers
then made some holly with my cricut and added some bling and made it a bit more special by turning it into an easel card
the design is from the challenge at crafty creations
I also want to add it to the challenges at
cute card Thursday - home made embellies
polka doodle - also home made embellies
craftalicious - anything goes
paper sundaes - change of season

am actually quite pleased with how it turned out, looks really much better in the flesh!!

thanks for your comments in advance
