Blue Christmas...



Happy Friday!

Fall is definitely here, and that reminds me that Christmas is getting closer! The image I used for this card is one of my all time favorites. It is a Serendipity image called Christmas Chapel
It was colored in shades of blue with Distress Inks.



For the background I used Snowflake Flourish small. I embossed it with clear embossing powder and added rhinestones. I also added glitter to the snowy parts of the image, but it doesn`t show in this photo.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi, I have been blog-hopping tonight but have spent the most time on your blog looking at your amazing designs - I love them all. You are just so talented. I am also a nurse and love trying to make cards. At the moment spellbinders are used on most of my cards but I still love my silhouette. I wish I could improve my stamping - must practice more...., Jacky

Naomi said...
