Christmas Card

Hello all

It is time for ther Pink Teams second challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The fabulous NanaConnie is hosting this challenge and her choice for this weeks theme is  


I thought I best get started on my Christmas cards so here is the first one this year lol.  I used an image from the net (sorry cannot remember where from!) I screwed the image and papers up several times and run distress ink over the top to make them look more creased and old. I also distressed the edges with Vintage photo ink to finish them off.  I then used Rock Candy over the image to give it some depth.  The papers are from my stash which is good as it saved my printer ink lol.  The three embellishments were silver snowflakes smothered in distress crackle paint, again Vintage photo with a sprinkling of glamour dust on top.  The sentiment I run up in word.  Not too much to write about this but hey that is okay as it saves your eyesight.
