Feeling Blue

I am pleased to say that I have nearly finished my Christmas cards. Some I shall  share as DT cards over the coming weeks. Now don't be shocked, I have been confined to the house this past week with a poorly foot, which  now  sports the multi coloured shades of  some eye catching bruises.  I have been  able to get out a little this afternoon, a slow walk, not very far, but it was lovely to be out in the fresh air .
 Thank you for all your kind wishes.
Now on to this card.

The image is a digi one from the Figgy Pudding set by Gecko Galz.
I used a Computer program to change the colour to print out Navy Blue.
An Embossalicious folder with sprigs of holly was useful to add texture to  the base card  layers. All the shading is Tumbled Glass distress ink.

I will join the current challenge at  Crafts -Too Challenge You.
The theme is a Vintage Christmas and Twist 1 for the 1st-14th November is Monochromatic

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
