White Christmas Challenge

There is a White Christmas challenge at Chocolate Baroque with a prize - a voucher to spend on some of their gorgeous goodies.  I decided to go with something fairly simple because some people don't really like cards to be too elaborate.  The background was printed from their Seasons Greetings CD with the text added on the computer.  The image is from a CB stamp set, stamped with distress ink and the colour pulled into the roof area using a water brush.  This was then glittered to look wintry, cut out using a Nestability label die and a little Distress ink brushed around the edges.  The little glittered wooden reindeer was a lucky find recently.

Make My Monday Challenge 27

I've not done much by way of making cards for a few days - other things do get in the way sometimes and I have to say I struggled this morning to come up with an idea for the Make My Monday challenge where they are asking for a seasonal project with added glitter.  Several attempts later I've eventually come up with these trees which are from Chocolate Baroque Fat Robin stamp set, stamped in Versamark onto dark blue pearlescent card and embossed using WOW platinum glitter powder. The blue panel was mounted onto a gltter layer as was the little sentiment. Background paper is from my stash and I added some glittery silver ribbon.
