Just Us Girls - Photo and Simon Says - Sparkles- Colour Create Challenge

I came across this photo of my twin brother and I when we were little... and how could I resist not using it on a Christmas card to him... hopefully it will make him smile as I know it did I for making it.

We lost our sister a few years ago so to me.. photos are very important for our memories.

I used a Canon paper  here for this in a lovely muted blue.. Added some silver glitter and ribbon.. oh and some blue gems.  Again a male card so don't want to go to over the top.  Also a little sentiment in the corner with some holographic tape.

Thank you for looking... it qualifies for.
