Christmas is on the way

Hello  friends and friends to be,
Christmas is coming in quicker than we think. Only another week and it will be here. I'm excited just thinking about it but wondering if I can get those last few cards out on time, the shopping done, those last few presents, and all the other things that have to be accomplished by the 25th of December .  Talking of cards here is my Christmas one for the Design Team over at the  Just for Fun Challenge .
 You all should have a go as its Just for Fun. There are a few prizes to be won and you can try out your skills as a card maker. 
You can also find a lot of ideas and inspiration from both the Design team and all the wonderful entries.
This is the card that I made to inspire you. It's a center stepper card. 

 I wrapped lace around the center front first and then layered a glittery ribbon and a red ribbon over the lace. The pretty topper is from Lili of the Valley and is layered onto gold mirri card and stuck on with foam pads. I decorated the sides to match the colours in the topper and added bows and gems to finish it off. 
Here is a side view to show the step and how it stands.

Inside I cut the insert to fit the stepper card and it fitted in nicely. Its just stuck at the top of each step and the center. 
The insert is inspired by my friend  Yvonne Tune.

 I hope you enjoyed looking at what I've done and hope it inspires you to try something different and to have fun in what you do. 
Have a wonderful week on the run up to Christmas and don't get too flustered.
Happy Days.
