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!
