White Christmas

I'll warn you now...this is the first of three Christmas cards I'm uploading this week...eek...don't know what came over me...must have been a reaction to all the sun at the end of last week! I've used 'Snowy' by Penny Black, coloured with watercolour pencils, and then gone Cuttlebug crazy on white card for the background. I used my 'Swiss Dots', 'Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystals' folders for the embossing, and cut the snowflakes using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables dies. The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley set.
