Christmas Blues...

I had a little play with my stash this afternoon...got some DT stuff done, and also made this Christmas card...using 'Little Star' by Lili of the Valley. The papers are from the 'Maddison' pad by Penny Black...I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is also by Lili of the Valley, and the Card Candi is from Craftwork Cards.
