#181 Christmas Carols for Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Hi there, oh goodness i've had one of those days today. One of those days where everything seems to go wrong, including posting the wrong card for the lovely Cynthia's challenge over at Rainbow lady's Challenge blog. Anyway, I'll try again and here is my DT Card for this weeks challenge which is all about Christmas Carols,
i've taken inspiration from 'Oh little town of Bethlehem' 

I'm well known for my dreadful photography skills but this one has got to be the worst ever lol. The card is actually pale pink and blue with silver embossing although the colours have all come out rather odd in the card. The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque Harlequin Christmas stamped with versamark and embossed with silver EP on a background I'd brayered with Big & juicy Hydrangea inkpad. The background was made using the same ink, brayered and then over stamped with a snowflake stamp. I then misted it all with pearl glimmer mist. A couple of die cut swirly flourishes and some organza ribbon to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards and more: Snowflakes
Craft your passion: Tis the season
Crafty Cardmakers: Heat embossing
Digi Doodle Shops best: Lots of sparkle

Thanks for calling by.

  4. I like the way you've used silver with the blues/purples rather than gold which would probably have been my instinctive choice - helps to give that wintery feel to this very seasonal card. Hope you have a better day today, Friday.

  13. This is stunning Claire, I'm sure it looks even better in the flesh.
    Isn't it annoying when the camera turns a card into a totally different colour.
