What a great sketch to play around with, one I shall use many times I'm sure. For my background paper I stamped and heat embossed Christmas trees over it and then ripped the edges to distress it (it distressed me more). I then decided to re-use an old doily which I inked with a couple of Brilliance ink pads. The snowflake border was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then wiping a Distress ink pad over the top. The punched flowers were coloured with the Distress ink pad and then glittered. The main image has been coloured with Promarkers (definately my favourite pens) and glittered along the edges.

Card Recipe

Stamps - Penny Black/Woodware
