Merry Monday #80


Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend!  This is my guest designer card for the Merry Monday challenge #80 - use music or a Carol inspired theme on your Christmas card.


I heat embossed the shepherds window and verse in black, coloured in the window using distress inks and an aqua brush and added sparkle to the star with a Quickie glue pen and silver leaf.

This card is also for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown October recipe/theme challenge #22 - add bling.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sue xx

Supplies:
Shepherds window and verse stamps - Clarity Stamps
Distress inks - Tim Holtz
