CHRISTMAS CARD TODAY

Hi Everyone I have a Christmas card completed today I started it a few days ago. I love these La Blanche stamps I discovered them a couple of years ago.. they stamp fantastic every time.. The backing paper is from the 12x12 My minds eye range.. I used kraft card for the base.. I added a little embossing around the stamped image and applied Tim Holtz barn door ink & a little frayed burlap to the edges.. Santa's face I used a touch of promarker (blush) The merry Christmas sentiment is a SU Stamp.. the ribbon & flower is from my stash..


A big welcome to my new followers Thank you for taking the time to join me x x  & Thank you all for visiting my blog today... Hugs May x x x

I would like to enter this card in http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.co.uk/ (Christmas Card)

HI May
This is just so gorgeous.
I have some of their stamps (foam backed) and couldn't agree more, they stamp beautifully, not that I have this particular image/
Love your colour choice, so warm and festive with a real vintage vibe.
Wishes
Lynne
