Blue Christmas


Been having a play with some Core-dinatations Whitewash card stock and I really love the effect. I can see quite a few of my Christmas cards are going to look like this. Stamp is Woodware, coloured with Whispers brush markers, large snowflake is another one from the HOTP template, others are punched. Seem to be going for the sparkle lately, with Stickles and Glamour Dust. My entry for Friday Sketchers and Winter Wonderland's Blue Christmas. tfl
