We Wish You.............

........ a merry Christmas!!
I can't believe that this is the 27th Christmas card that I've made this year.  Normally I make them September/October and choose just 2 or 3 designs to go on them but this year they're all going to be different

I'm entering it into the following challenges

2012 Christmas Card #24  any seasonal card with an option of using an old, neglected stamp

Paper Pretties Monday challenge #39  to use glitter

Squigglefly challenge #19  sentiment as focal point

Whimsy stamps challenge #39  anything goes

There is definitely some glitter on this card lol  The paper was a bluey-green and I wanted to deepen the green around the edges to draw the eye to the green mat behind the sentiment.  You can just about see in the photos that I have stamped the background with another stamp, it does show up better in "the flesh", using Versamark ink pad.  I highlighted the corners by adding iridescent peeloff snowflakes

I stamped the sentiment and then over stamped it with the Versamark pad and added holographic embossing powder.  I trimmed the panel and layered it on to green glitter card.  The glittered snowflakes were rescued from one of last years Christmas cards and recycled
