Christmas Card with Mirri Window

This card is the Winner @ Scrapping4fun
it's a runner up @Cuttlebug Mania

Hello Bloggers,

A Christmas card today. Naturally :)

With one of my favorite dies - the very old Marianne Design Creatables Lr 0253 Open Book. Used as one piece or cut down into layers, it always turns out good. The Dutch text on the patterned paper reads "Happy New Year" and "Happy Holidays".

The background paper with a wreath comes from Action (a totally cheap chain store in Holland). I did not expect to find anything like that there, but... there we are. It's not worse than some expensive stuff :)

I like the effect the silver mirri board creates as the window. It picks up the light nicely and makes the whole scene more vivid. I think :)
