Marvellous Monday.......


Hello,

I hope you are all well. My card today is another Christmas card. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. The background is distressed with walnut stain and I have added my cannot live without stickles. The paper is also edged with walnut stain and some stickles. I have stamped swirls around the paper with antique linen. I have also distressed the flowers and sprayed them with glimmer mist. The heart has been glimmer misted also after some distressing.


I hope you have a great week as we get ever nearer to Christmas (gulp).

Thank you so much for looking.

love
