More Christmas...

It's been really busy around our house the last few weeks, holy cow! Today is the first day of school for my kiddos, and the first day of Kindergarten for my son!! It seems like only yesterday it was my daughters first day of Kindergarten, and now she is in the 4th grade!!
Anyway here is another card for the Christmas stack! Very quick and simple to make too!! I used a reverse masking technique, and sponged the ink into the circle. I stamped the ink off once to get the lighter snowflakes inside of the circle. Then I removed my masking and stamped the large snowflake, (with full strength ink) and sentiment. The snowflakes and the sentiment are both from The Angel Company, "Ornamental Snowflakes" and "Holiday Liners". I layered my card front on a scrap of bright blue Bazzil Bling card stock (wow try to say the 10 times fast!), added some silver cording and a little gem. I am really happy with how it turned out, hope you enjoy it to!
