Going crackers so no card this week

Hello friends,
Yes the title says it all. I have made some crackers this week, for some small gifts that some of my family will be getting.

DS4J is sponsoring the challenge at Not Just Cards this week and I have been asked to be GD, with the theme...anything but a card, so this is the cracker that I made for this challenge.

The paper I used is from a year or two ago and unfortunately the name has been cut off.
The image is called Christmas wreath with bow and you can get it HERE
Christmas wreath with bowI coloured it with Twinkling H20's, made the berries with Pontura pearl makers. Printed the bow a second time and used silicone to make it 3D. Added a pearl.
I used a fancy die of Noor Design, cut with green and sponged with gold Pan Pastel
Finished off with brown and gold ribbon.
The template I used for the cracker is a freebie from Netty's Cards. She has a lot of other freebies, so pay a visit to her blog.

I will enter some challenges:

I will be back tomorrow, so see you then. Take care and have fun.
Love Ursula
