Christmas Flourish

I have another Christmas card for you today...well, we are over half-way there...eeek! This is my attempt at a one-layer-card with a flourish for this week's Less is More challenge...I dug out my Hero Arts 'Fantastic Flourishes' set (which I haven't used in such a long time...naughty me) and then tried to find something to go with them....eventually settling on this elegant Penny Black sentiment stamp. I stamped and embossed them in silver, masked off strips at the top and bottom, then blended (starting from the edges working towards the middle) 'Stormy Sky', 'Faded Jeans' and 'Chipped Saphire' Distress Inks over the top...simples...and cheap to post! ;0)
