How brave to tear a circular shape beautifully done. Great card

Great tearing Lorraine, it's amazing how many folk do struggle with this. I had a class once with tearing cards and a couple of girls just couldn't do it!

I love the tearing and the holly. A super festive card.

Hugs Erika. x

This is beautiful, Lorraine. Your tearing is wonderfully done and you are right, it is good to go outside of our comfort zones from time to time. I'm glad you embraced the challenge and tore the entire borders. :o) The stamp is festively delightful and I love the holly paper. Gorgeous work as always, my friend.

Hugs and blessings,

Hi Lorraine, this is a beautiful card. I love how you have torn the circle shape - i would never have thought of that. I struggled a bit (well - a lot)! with the ripping thing! I am a bit of a neat freak.
