Christmas Saffron Buns

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well and Christmas preprations almost done :D! Another of my Christmas cards to share today and this time with the very sweet Tilda with saffron buns, love her hat with the heart at the top!  I think saffron buns are very traditional in Sweden and we were welcomed with coffee and sugar topped buns soon after we arrived at the Magnolia shop back in October, not sure if those are the same but they are delicious and reminded me a bit of our Chelsea buns.

Another easel card design with white bazzil card for the base and beautiful Magnolia paper for the top layer

Pretty ribbon, flowers, a die cut Christmas tree, the 'A Merry Christmas' sentiment, Magnolia Doohickey die cut snowflake and pearl flowers to decorate.

I'm entering my card into the Midweek Magnolias challenge of 'home for Christmas' and Tilda's Town challenge of 'freezin' season'.

I love her hat too and the way it crinkles softly. The greens are very rich with the white as your base. I also love the versatile tree on the side standing tall. Gorgeous card and very merry.
Hugs, Kelly
