Monochrome Christmas

More Christmas - I'm really on a roll now and it's a good job because I had a bit of a sort out today and I've only half a dozen cards left from last year so I better get a wriggle on. And talking of having a sort out I did some sorting in the wardrobe today and put aside a very large bin liner of clothes for the charity shop - it was quite traumatic,  I don't part with clothes easily so I had a crafting session to calm me down. I made this monochromatic card using shades of blue.  
The background is clear embossed snowflakes with Distress inks. The main image is stamped in midnight blue stazon with distress inks and ultra fine white flowersoft applied.

I'm sharing this over at  -

Hope you've enjoyed the weekend  - I'm on a study day tomorrow, gotta get some sleep so my brain works !   "must study and not craft...must study and not craft...must study and not craft....."   Esther xx
