Starry and Blue

Can I mention the C word in July?!  It seems that crafters are the only ones who are OK with it... everyone else shouts or tuts!

Here is my first Christmas card of the year.

I stamped and embossed this Christmas sentiment.
'May the love that was born that Christmas night light all your days with joy and hope'
And then masked it off.

I have used my newly acquired cut n dry and some cyan ink pads to 'blue up' the card stock and then randomly stamped stars.  I also used a white in pad that is really pearly and shiny.

I'm going to link this card up with:
Lollipop Crafts - Christmas in July
The Crafters Cafe - Christmas in July - Non traditional colours
CASE study - Layout, stars and colour inspiration
CASual Fridays - 'Text Me' 

Thanks for stopping by!

    I have a "Rudolph Day" challenge each 25th of the month on my blog (lasts a week)to encourage fellow crafters to make festive cards throughout the year so they are not rushing around at that busy time of the year. You're welcome to join in.

    Anyhoo . . . back to your card . . .it's beautiful. I love the colours and the sentiment.
