ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for

I have another Christmas card today...this time it's for our current ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is:

'A is for Anything Goes!'
Nice and easy...anything Christmas will do!

We have three fabulous sponsors to try to tempt you to get cracking with this year's Christmas cards:

Simon Says Stamp with a fab $15 voucher excluding postage.

$10 Gift Certificate

Mini Christmas Ribbon Kit.

I had a play with some more of the goodies I picked up in the post-Christmas sales...a set of Prima cling stamps ('North Country') and the Winter 2011 Limited Edition Distress Inks. I stamped and embossed the tree in white, then blended 'Iced Spruce', 'Evergreen Bough' and 'Stormy Sky' inks over the top. I did the same with some of the snowflake stamps in the set to make the background...and that's it...simples!

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and some of the Stamp Fairy girls, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
