A Christmas Wish

Now, you're probably beginning to think that all of my cards are a bit similar lately...and it's true, I've been using a lot of white recently...but I just had to join in with the 'White on White' theme of this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I followed the sketch from the Create4Fun Challenge, using an image from the 'Holly Jolly' clear stamp set, which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding some 'Polar White' Flowersoft 'snow'. I embossed the background with my 'Swiss Dots' and 'Snowflakes' folders, distressing the edges to add some definition between the layers. The snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug dies, the sentiment stamp is by Pollycraft, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.
