Classic Christmas

A gorgeous card made with a "junk bow". 
I have just finished watching an on-line class (my first one) 
with Margie Romney-Asl​ett
And Loved the junk bows, so I made a heap last night and threw one this card... doesn't it just finish it all off beautifully???

This card is for my mum this christmas...Now my mum doesn't like layers, or ink, or tags or tearing...pretty much everything I love to I have tried for something a little more classical for her.
Simply gold embossed images from Chocolate Baroque (just my favourite ones this year!!!)
Gold edged and inked on the edges (sorry mum, couldn't resist it lol) with vintage photo and wild honey.
Then the fun bit....the junk bow!
