A Very Wordy Christmas

I'm afraid my blog's going to look a bit Christmassy this week...this is the first of three Christmas cards I'll be showing you over the next few days! I started off by masking off a strip across my card, and blending 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink over it. I then stamped a Christmas text background stamp (by My Paper World) in Memento 'London Fog' ink over the top. After I removed the masks, I stamped a sentiment (by Penny Black) and a few silvery pearls (from Wild Orchid Crafts).
