Red, White & Yule!

I have a Christmas card with a patriotic colour combo of red, white & blue to share today. I started by stamping and heat embossing my Stampendous 'Snow Swirl' stamp in white, then blended 'Stormy Sky' and 'Faded Jeans' Distress Inks over the top. I matted it on to red and navy card, then added a few adhesive pearls (from Wild Orchid Crafts). The sentiment stamp is from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware.
