First Christmas Card

Only fourteen weeks until Christmas! Time to get my skates on and start my Christmas cards, I'll bet lots of you have already finished yours. Last year I think I was still finishing cards on Christmas Eve - how stressful was that!

I have to say I really struggled with this card, I think I was using too much water and the outline was bleeding into the brush markers turning it into a sludgy mess, so I was happy to finally get an image that I was happy with.

The background paper is a lovely one from Pink Petticoat, it's so nice I wanted to show as much of it as possible. The snowflakes are punched with a bit of bling in the centre and the Jolly Holly sentiment is from HOtP.
