Let It Snow!

I have a clean and simple Christmas card to share today...with a torn edge for this week's Less Is More Challenge. I embossed a piece of blue Core'dinations card using my SIzzix 'Snowflakes' folder...lightly sanding over the surface to reveal the lighter core. I tore the bottom edge, then matted it on to a piece of navy card, on to which I'd stamped and embossed a sentiment (from the 'Joy to the World' set by Penny Black). The snowflake was cut using a Cuttlebug die, and the button and twine are from my stash.

I'm so sorry that I'm late in visiting this week, but I have been on a wonderful cruise to Norway where I didn't have very good Internet coverage!
Thanks so much for your lovely contribution!
