Yay!  Another Christmas card for my stash and using the fabulous HobbyArt sentiment that I love!  I think the font on this is just awesome and makes a stunning focal point.  I stamped it with Versafine and embossed it with silver detail powder and coloured it with a blue Promarker.  I cut it out with a Spellbinders label die and inked through the die with Distress Ink.  The embossing in the background is done with a Cuttlebug folder then I added watered down Distress Ink, dried with my heat gun and added a bit more ink just to the raised areas. Then I drew on some dots with a silver Sharpie pen and added  little pearls for bling.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

HobbyArt - 'Words' - in my case - just one word!
Rudolph Days - Anything goes as long as its Christmas.

Please pop over to both of these blogs - they are fabulous!

Thank you so much for visiting me - your visits and comments mean so much!
Take care, Christine xxx

Great texture & sparkle on the wonderfully embossed background. The way you've done the sentiment is so pretty, letting that gorgeous background shine too. So glad you played along in the Rudolph Challenge. TFS

Very pretty! I am seeing lots of blue Christmas cards in blogland these days. I just can't think Christmas yet. I am willing to think H'ween though.
