Girly Christmas

Time for a Christmas card and this is the first time I've inked this stamp. I bought it as a bit of a bargain in the clearance section in one of my local craft stores and it works so well for Christmas as well as other occassions! It's been coloured with Promarkers and just a hint of glitter glue.

I've used papers and sentiment from Polkadoodles Jingle Jangle Christmas plus some shiny silver card I found for layering. The gems are from my stash and for some strange reason, it took me ages to work out how best to place them!


The ribbon is from my stash and I've added some red and white embroidery thread as extra detail. And I've just realised that she's floating - I've not added a shadow..... ah well!

Another Christmas card off my total!!
