Merry Christmas - PP#167, Merry Monday #79



Hi there!  It's a beautiful day here in the Fraser Valley... no time to be thinking about Christmas yet.... but I went ahead and made a Christmas card anyway!  I used the Merry Monday and Paper Players challenges to inspire me... and the end result is sure shiny and sparkly!

I used the emboss resist technique on here.  I heat embossed my tree in white, sponged some Midnight Muse and Pool Party behind, wiping the excess off of my embossing when I was done.  I also stamped some falling snowflakes in Pool Party, finishing off with my Midnight Muse sentiment and some Dazzling Diamonds to give my tree some sparkle!  



On my second photo you can see the Dazzling Diamonds a little better than in the first... but it's pretty hard to see.  It's there though... and in real it's just gorgeous!

OK... that's it for me.  Have a wonderful day!
