Another Chrstmas Card to Share


Hi All,
Just a quick post tonight to show another of the 'batch' Christmas Cards.  I made something similar for a LIM challenge a few weeks ago, but just used the CI stamp. (kept it simple for LIM).  For this one I inked the background and matted onto silver. I stamped The Night Before Christmas text from Inkylicious, and inked again with DI, and lots of Stickles around the distressed edge.  The Jingle Bells stamp on the bottom was a 'freebie' from CI with my last order. The Snowflake is a Marianne die borrowed from my crafty friend Diane.
I am going to enter this card in:
  Papertake Weekly - First Christmas
  My Time to Craft - Sun ,Moon or Stars
  Partytime Tuesdays - Bling it On - anything Sparkly
  Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Christmas
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Just before I go, I would like to mention that  Dot  a very talented DT member from FSC is giving away her fabulous card from this weeks challenge, Dot is trying to get to 50 Followers, she is almost there, and if you pop by her blog, I am sure you will want to visit regularly, prepare to be inspired.

That's it for now,

Take card
