A Christmas Mail Box

Today, I am sharing a card I have made for my friend to give to her Mum.
I started by embossing the base card to give a bit of texture, plus
this folder looks a bit like baubles!

some sparkle, I placed the layers together and glued them straight onto the card.
Lastly, I added the sentiment layered on the ovals.
