Twas the night before Christmas and one more card to share!

Wishing all the very best for the holiday season! It's Christmas Eve and I have one last card to share with your before Santa's visit!  

This time it's a Joy Fold Card featuring the Thoughtful Expressions Bundle from the Poetic Expressions Suite!  Quickly becoming one of my favourites!

Joy Fold cards are so easy to make and give a little bit of a wow!

Check out this pretty card in Wild Wheat and Bubble Bath.  I'm not sure I would have thought about using these 2 colours together, but the Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper used the combinations. I really like it!  How about you?
