Seasons Greetings

Hi Folks
Well, another week has flown by.  I have this weekend off work so planning on completing some more christmas cards and getting some presents wrapped.  Christmas is only just around the corner.

Today I would like to share another quick and easy christmas card.


I started off by blending a couple of shades of blue distress ink onto a square of white card.  I then stamped the sentiment (which I have had in my stash for months) using distress ink.  The snowflakes are XCut dies cut out of white card.  I did add some sparkle and shine spray to them.  To finish the card I added some sequins. 

A really quick and easy card to do and can be done in various colours.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do appreciate all your lovely comments.
